Darum geht's

Todd Haynes’ homage to Douglas Sirk’s style of social critique by way of melodrama masterfully tells the story of a well-to-do suburban Connecticut couple in the 1950s, straitjacketed by convention, desperate to live the lives they really want.

The kind of nod Haynes engages in here is not the nudge of Godard or De Palma, but rather an honest pastiche and one of the few films to truly replicate Sirk’s effects and apply them to new situations.

Though there are several layers of metacinematic removal in the film, the experience was pure and direct: here was a convincing simulacrum—conveyed via costumes, lighting, score, editing, and performance style—of an outdated mode of cinematic presentation. More than ten years on, Far from Heaven’s effect is doubly poignant: it was shot on film on the cusp of the digital revolution, and now also remains a testament to its medium in its very being and texture.

Todd Haynes’s Far From Heaven – a revisionist pastiche of the Technicolor melodramas Douglas Sirk made for Universal Pictures in the 1950s — was easily, and in some ways deservedly, the most popular movie among critics at the Toronto film festival in September. Though less obviously a tour de force than many flashier recent art films, such as Alexander Sokurov’s one-take featureRussian Ark, it’s no less impressive as a technical achievement.
