A rare and beautiful moment in film
4 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are rare and fleeting moments in film history when one is suddenly given a glimpse of the specific beauty of the medium. This sort of ephemeral beauty can only be expressed by the marriage of temporal and spacial (and some may include auditory) elements that is singular to film. One such moment is the storm sequence in "Une partie de campagne." I saw this film once, several years ago, and yet the haunting poetry of that scene still sticks in my mind vividly. Combined with the intense love scene which precedes it, and its contrast to the overall frivolity of the narrative, makes it the most beautiful film of one of film's greatest directors. If you get the chance to see it, its well worth your 40 minutes.
