La perle

Henri D'Ursel Belgium, 1929

Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Pearl

1929 is also the year of 'Un Chien Andalou', not surprisingly, with which this movie shares similar themes. It's also expressionistic, amateurish, and sensual. The soundtrack provided by Mireille Capelle moves it firmly into the realm of the strange.
