Student film...a decent, proustian back and forth in the mind and life of an elderly everywoman...did Polanski really have a child whip a frog for his art? Oh well, at least he didn't blow a bunch up with firecrackers like Jodorowsky....with apologies to Taylor Swift, "the present day was black and white, the past was in living color"
Une dame-pipi, vieille et pleine de souvenirs, vient prendre son service habituel dans des toilettes publiques en souterrain où elle voit passer au-dessus de sa tête, à travers une verrière, les pieds des passants. Défile une faune des plus hétéroclites jusqu'à un ange qui tombe du haut, mystérieusement. Entre fantastique et merveilleux ! www.cinefiches.com
Pretty impressive to track Polanski's progress as a filmmaker from "Murder" to "When Angels Fall". In only a couple of years with minimal experience he was able to elevate his craft. I wish I could have been apart of this film school during this era, where special people were emerging as great filmmakers without having to hammer themselves with experience.
