35mm, beautiful print. 4,5. It's from the previous decade the Cukor's film that is closest to this one, "Bhowani Junction": a political conflict and a woman, in Panavision. In this unexpected film, the filmmaker advances, like never before in his career, in sexual and erotic figurations that i believe to be very close to his taste, framing Durrell's book in an absolutely cinematographic perspective -that is, another.
Anouk Aimee is PERFECT CASTING as Justine. It is a shame that she was not willing to cooperate with Cukor. I have heard that she was very difficult on other films but this was a great opportunity. The film still fascinates.
