The French version of Winter Light
A glorious wonderful film, deeply felt and wonderfully directed and acted. This film is the best document I know of how cinema can be great and truly heart-felt, and at the same time reflective of the inner lives of normal people. This film could be taken as an indictment of most of American Cinema, the cinema of super heroes and tawdry vulgarisms. And should be.
depressing pictures, depressing music, depressing conversations, somewhat beautiful all in all.
