beautiful beyond belief
7 April 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I first saw this exquisite film in 1968 at an Opus Dei film night ! when my parents were palming me off to these mad institutionalized weirdos as some sort of babysitting service for teens. Fortunately the imagery of this glorious film lasted longer the their brutal effects... mainly because this truly great film is about the ineffectiveness of brutality on a smart strong sensitive teen. Such is the impact of this breathtaking perfect children's film that I actually have been yearning, quietly searching for CRIN BLANC for over 40 years ......and I have been lucky enough to re discover it again. On DVD in spectacular Black and White. I shall simply put my reaction to it as this: What I felt in my head and heart is what I hope I experience one day as I die. In fact as I die I simply want to drift off into 40 blissful minutes of the vision and emotion this film evokes. It is perfect. The sight of escaping on a white stallion into the sea after being pursued by idiots who want to trap me and the loving beast of life is what this film imparts on the viewer. For those who see this film as 'nothing' or a 'good way to kill 40 minutes'... well, have another hamburger and grab a coke and go to a multiplex and see a Nicholas Cage CGI fest. But leave CRIN BLANC to the poets of the world who know what it is to die intact with the love of freedom and beauty. My life is actually now complete now that I have rediscovered CRIN BLANC. There is nothing else in moviedom more rewarding, exquisite and emotionally fulfilling than experiencing this film. If you have an ounce of poetry in you or yearning for everything this planet is and stands for... well it is captured in CRIN BLANC. If you see it and know what I am imparting to you well then you get it. CRIN BLANC is what it is like to die satisfied.CRIN BLANC is our life in a children's parable.
