Gone to Earth

Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger Reino Unido, 1950

Richmond Hill's rating of the film Corazón salvaje

Florid melodrama almost as untamed as its heroine. On balance it falls between the penny romances of Gainsborough and the more introspective dourness of Emily Bronte. Not a failure, but a slither of a premise running riot all over the place. Saturated Technicolor doesn't help.
