a pure masterpiece !
15 July 2002 | by (paris) – See all my reviews

A pure masterpiece! Undoubtedly Ruiz's best! Treasure island belongs to this category of films that is devoted to express the realm of childhood, with all its delighted charm, and also its perverted games. This film is not merely an adaptation of Stevenson's famous work ; it tells the story of a child that is gradually brought into a sort of game orchestrated by adults, a game which recreates the childlike universe of Stevenson's Treasure Island. And gradually too, this child happens to merge (but it would be hard to explain) into the figure of the author, played by Jean-Pierre Léaud, whose off-voice relates in French the memories of the child himself. A jigsaw-like film, that is worth to be seen a lot of consecutive times, without its delightful treasures being completely revealed. >
