30 hand picked films. A new one every day
An early David Lean and well worth seeing. The fact that the death is not proven adds a certain "je ne sais quoi" to this B&W masterpiece. Ann Todd was quite a tasty piece of merchandise in her day.
Solidly mounted yet generally overlong meander around this famous case. The cinematography is as crisp as you'd expect but the gorgeous ebb and flow leads you nowhere.
Film raffinato, retto da un'attrice perfetta per la parte.
Only 17 ratings!? Surely Lean's least known then. A deadly beautiful Scottish melodrama.
A thing of beauty delivered with an impeccably lush rhythm undone by a stagy, alienating conclusion that robs its heroine of the power of speech.
