Ratings & Reviews

  1. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    This is the least showy and quietest film I've seen from Orson Welles and I loved it for it!

  2. Ethan's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    This is a nice little film from Welles that deals with the memories of loss and pain.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    Une oeuvre intemporelle qui atteint parfois des sommets de subtilité... www.cinefiches.com

  4. El Biffo's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    Jeanne Moreau is ravishing and Orson Welles sinister and decrepit in this strange tale. "It is very hard on people who want things so badly that they cannot live without them."

  5. grotescsetorg's rating of the film The Immortal Story

  6. Nabil Hamzaki's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    "I don't like prophecies. People should only record things that already happened."

  7. captainfez's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    Orson Welles stars in HELLO SAILOR: THE DIABEETUS DIARIES.

  8. Ezra's rating of the film The Immortal Story

  9. Aardsy's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    The corpse of Orson Welles's best work.

  10. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    Kind of exactly the sort of thing I like. Strange, dreamy musings that don’t necessarily amount to much, but are all mood and all absorption. Looks great too.

  11. Terry_Moby's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    Pure and very beautiful. - So Mr. Welles also knew how to handle the colours...

  12. Diderot's rating of the film The Immortal Story

  13. Muraki's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    4.5 out of 5. You must hear the story!

  14. Jason's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    Such a stripped-down and sacred thing. One of the great collaborations between a film director and a cinematographer (the brilliant Willy Kurant). A pretty streamlined and off-at-a-remove production. Meaning that there wasn't much to interfere in the pure mechanics of this extraordinary collab. The cutting is also sensational. This is a universal parable, rendered in gauze and light. And an experiment. A discovering.

  15. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    What people tend to love/hate about Welles is that, wherever his character originated (even Shakespeare), the movie usually ends up being in some sense about Welles himself. Since he completed no fictional feature after this short story, it feels like a kind of coda whether it was intended that way or not, a hauntingly bizarre examination of the filmmaking process, in all its contradictory, perverse glory.

  16. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film The Immortal Story

  17. Thomas's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    Dreamlike fable shot with an aptly sublime, downbeat tone and oppressive, stifling atmosphere. Sumptuously filmed and a good use of space and silence. Though this is a short feature, the story's concise narrative could still have benefited from a tighter edit.

  18. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    An unusual and atmospheric chamber piece. The low-budget production standards contribute to a theatrical sense of unreality: a story situated somewhere between reality and fairy tale, an almost magical realist feel. The aesthetic thus matches the core subject matter which poses interesting questions around the nature of story, power and the tension between the reality of our personal narratives and fantasy.

  19. matdd3's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    Etherial, mysterious and, thankfully, short.

  20. thinsilenus's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    Subtle and profound. A lovely film.

  21. Dareos Khalili's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    certainly not of his best. Good premise though

  22. innersmiff's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    Extended vignette on the mystery of stories. Orson Welles is tired of being read account books, so seeks to re-enact a popular sailor story. Eerie and beautiful in parts, naval-gazing in others. Part autobigraphical by Welles?

  23. raggiodisole's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    Haunting, really, drew me in most unexpectedly. Bravo, Mr Welles! Should not be so surprised

  24. DrFirestone's rating of the film The Immortal Story

    I loved the eerie atmosphere. Great music, performances and cast. The film's very poetical and feels like a theatrical play at times. Expertly directed, fantastic camerawork. Unfortunately the production value drags it down, poor quality video and sound in particular.
