  • dionysus67's rating of the film The Quarterly Balance

    Less adventurous in terms of visual formal style (not at all, though, altogether absent here), Zanussi's warm film about role-conflicts and strains in a woman's life benefits from beautifully understated performances and from rich, color cinematography. It's a great celebration of a woman's emotions, intellect, body and resilience, eschewing conventional feminist discourses. Visual metonymies about closure impress.
