35mm, rewatched. What do expectations mean and how do they intervene in the process of viewing a movie? Why did someone tell me yesterday that this movie was not Lubitschian and it was just a movie he made to pay the bills? How can we not see a prodigy of mise-en-scène where the melodrama is elevated to the superior aesthetic category of a miraculous vision? And, besides, it has Lubitschian doors and ellipses.
