a Masterpiece
6 February 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I agree with Scott Davies's comments,this film is really a masterpiece,and it's probably one of the best ghost stories ever made,but it's also one of the best "horror" movies of the 70's. The story is complex and moving,the acting is very good (Mia Farrow's performance is amazing),the direction is elegant,the use of Cinemascope,the sets and peter Hannan's cinematography are wonderful,and colin Towns's famous and beautiful soundtrack perfectly fits the sad and chilling mood of the film. I must add that the ending,without revealing anything,is one of the most stunning and PERFECT ever,in every ways (direction,cinematography,acting,music)! To sum up: this film is sad,chilling,haunting,poetic,moving... is there a DVD available??
