Schwanensee

Truck Branss West Germany, 1966

Richmond Hill's rating of the film Swan Lake

A record of a great partnership which manages to flash through a sea of stodge with sharp aplomb, but the production is embalmed with fugue-like set designs and artists weighted down in muddy pomp. The music of course compensates for the generally deadened atmosphere.
