Critics reviews

As drama, this film is nothing new. Yet the mise en scène points in fresh and fascinating directions. After four films made on location, The Three Passions reaches its apogee in a surreal Art Deco nightclub that could only ever be a set. Couples dance back and forth across a geometrical black-and-white floor. A jazz band – their faces painted, their suits emblazoned with musical notes – plays as a row of disembodied legs kicks in a vast mirror below the stage.
