  • José Neves's rating of the film Romance in a Minor Key

    Kautner was a major reference for Syberberg and more i understand why: like the one i saw last month, "UNTER DEN BRÜCKEN", even if he was filming during the 2nd World War in Nazi Germany, it was the formalism of story telling that he looked for, and his movies were happening in the ethereal imag(e)inary of romanticism. A great director, here with something of Ophuls, in the other film with "L'Atalante" on my mind.

  • FISCHER's rating of the film Romance in a Minor Key

    Une magnifique photographie en noir et blanc, pour une attrayante oeuvre de qualité, transposant avec maîtrise et précision toute la subtilité et la finesse intimistes des écrits de Guy de Maupassant, avec en prime des acteurs convaincants, à la présence évidente et certaine, dirigés par un cinéaste confirmé...
