Well..., 1 November 2011

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I really don't know what to think, say and write about this strange film. I have not seen anything from Arturo Ripstein before, and I will probably never see anything from him later. This one is somewhere fascinating, surprising and not foreseeable at any point of view. I did not know what it was about. No plot line on IMDb.

We find here Charlotte Rampling, Max Von Sydow and Peter O'Toole, all used to international casts and productions. Some people find themselves on a paradise island, in the thirties, some time before the war they all could feel very close. And, of course, we assist at a tragedy, because of Charlotte Rampling between Sydow, Peter O'Toole and also Claudio Brooke. A drama, as we although could expect. The filming is rather classic, and actors directing too. But the story remains very offbeat.

I am surprised that no user has commented it yet. So it's done. I have filled my duty.
