Le temps retrouvé, d'après l'oeuvre de Marcel Proust

Raúl Ruiz ফ্রান্স, 1999

dionysus67's rating of the film Time Regained

For many, Ruiz's most conventional film -an understandable objection- yet convention had to be brought into the narrative to capture a glimpse of Proust's magisterial work. Ruiz succeeds by dazzling visuals (his front-stage handling of objects is unsurpassed) and through highly competent acting by a great ensemble, he manages to subordinate the ravishing mise-en-scène to the a frozen time from a bygone era. Gorgeous!
