Una pura formalità

Giuseppe Tornatore Italia, 1994

Ralph Melcher's rating of the film A Pure Formality

So long since I’ve seen Depardieu and it’s a pleasure to watch him and Polanski duel in the darkness amid so much water. With every drop a memory is revealed and the mystery uncovered. A dark play in a box from which there is no escape. I thought of Hitchcock and Nicholas Roeg and even Ridley Scott as I watched. As different from ‘Cinema Paradiso’ as one could imagine.
