Engaging adaptation of Ayckbourn's play (Resnais' second, Smoking/No Smoking being the first) Private Fears in Public Places beautifully performed and constructed to convey the emotional isolation of the characters caught in the prisms of their lives. I found it touching, sad and often very funny, quite delicious in fact to the last ...snowflake.
I instantly fell in love with this film from the beginning. The mood of the film and the melancholy of its characters created a vibrant array of emotions that were felt until the very last scene. The impressions left are still lasting...
And God said, "Let every fade be a snowy fade." And it was so. Full of overdone soft lighting effects, pointless and jarring zoom-ins, and a laughable orbiting camera shot toward the end. Really awful.
Sublimes personnages solitaires et solidaires qui s'agitent dans leur bulle opaque et neigeuse. Nous sommes un incommensurable mystère pour les autres et pour nous mêmes, un chant multiple d'échos et de songes qui n'arrive jamais à se faire entendre, écouter, par la bonne personne, au bon moment... www.cinefiches.com
