Storyline

Elegant and educated bachelor, Charles Swann, moves in the most powerful and fashionable circles of Paris in the 1890's. When he falls in love with Odette de Crecy, a courtesan, his friends warn him against marriage. Proving himself a silly and socially-foul goose, Swann ducks his social responsibilities, Odette ensnares him, and he is gently but firmly cast out of society amidst everyone's great politeness.

29 March 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

strange construction. remarkable recreation of atmosphere, few drops of Proust novel -as discreet homage - a nice Charlus, a voluptuous Odette and correct Swann. details of a world in who mannerism is part of fall. good acting, interesting description of obsession, seductive tale about life style of aristocracy levels. and if you do not read the confession of Marcel, all is OK. but in case of error, the taste is not good. a slice of perfect universe remains a slice. the good intentions are far to be steps of adaptation. the flavor is present, the voices are at perfect place, the images are parts from the cake but result is a poor drawing. sure, it is an exercise." A la recherche de temps perdu" is out of any adaptation. but important is the fact than it is not a really disappointing film. that is the key.
