Far From Heaven

Todd Haynes USA, 2002

ramosbarajas's rating of the film Dem Himmel so fern

The melodrama is here, present, but it's very true. The production design is incredible. I loved the performances; they are real but capture the aestetics of an homage. The music is very good and similar to the genre. Of everything, the editing is probably the weakest. It's the one element I feel did not manage to capture the style of the 50s melodrama.
