Sirk meets Ophuls
ayasaitoko from Japan
17 July 2006
this is supposed to be a Douglas Sirk film (he directed under pseudo
name), and the dialogue was done by wonderful Jacques Natansen who
wrote scripts for Ophuls's La Rondo and Le Plaisir
(adaptation/dialogue), and Lola Montes (dialogue). It's a rare gem that
Dirk meets Ophuls (the two directors relationship I always found
curious, though totally different, another interesting comparison is
Reckless Moment and There's Always Tomorrow) in a most unexpected way.
I would really, really want to see it again (I saw it in Tokyo last
year when it was shown as part of FILMEX festival). Please release this
wonderful film on DVD!
