  • dionysus67's rating of the film The Red Inn

    Silent moral tale, after Balzac, about justice, greed and romance. Epstein's impressionist perspective is evident in a number of moments like, for example, in the way he dissects space in the inn and focuses on various objects and characters but also in the lyrical shots of nature. The macabre and occult aspects add to the atmosphere of gloom and unredeemed wrongdoing. Narratively, it is complex and elliptical.
