"La Musica" Surrounding a Failed Marriage
14 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"La Musica" (1967) was written by Marguerite Duras based on her play which she also directed with Paul Seban. It is quite accomplished for so simple an idea, but never the less, well carried out with beautiful black and white camera-work by Sasha Vierny. Just the story of "He" and "She" who come for their nonetheless divorce judgement and stay in the same hotel and realize some extraordinary insights into their dissolving marriage. The incomparable Delphine Seyrig is "She" and Robert Hossein plays "He." Hossein's efforts as a director are much more striking than his innumerable acting roles. I think he was more, and these performances may have made him define the role of "He," of "a man on the verge." In movies as an actor he is best at being potentially devious. especially as he was in Sergio Gobbi's "Maldonne" (AKA: "Misdeal") and the work he did for Vadim. But the opposite of this intriguing quality is also at work and is a tendency to be monotonous. The Franz Shubert melody "Winter Journey" is one of several motifs, a cageful of snarling panthers on a television screen coupled with vicious dog at the hotel window are some of the artistic flourishes that Duras provides. Well worth seeing to savor.
