Superb Transposal Of Schnitzler Novel.
29 August 2005 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

Theoretician Wolfgang Nehring has characterized the Austrian physician/novelist/dramatist Arthur Schnitzler in this fashion: " a courageous diagnostician of the people and society of his time", and with this romantically dressed, psychologically laced drama based upon a novel by Schnitzler, director Roberto Faenza has crafted a strongly atmospheric and artfully subtle piece that is, so to speak, delightful to the senses and satisfying to the mind. Keith Carradine is very effective as Doctor Emil Gräsler, a bachelor who has become emotionally sedated through use of shielding from his closeness with his unwed sister Frederica (Miranda Richardson), rationale for maintaining the comfort of his detachment from women, but after Frederica unexpectedly hangs herself, Emil seeks love to obviate the feelings of loss that have resulted from the abrupt end to the binding alliance with his sibling. He receives assistance in his amorous search from three widely disparate women, acutely played by Richardson (fulfilling the requirements of a well-developed dual role), Kristin Scott-Thomas, and Sarah-Jane Fenton. The film is an Italian/Hungarian production, shot in Italy and released there during 1991 under the title MIO CARO DOTTOR GRÄSLER and, with Hugh Fleetwood's tasteful English language screenplay, two years after in the United States where it was renamed THE BACHELOR and distributed in a sole San Francisco art house wherein fortunate patrons were pleasured by a vividly beautiful work, thanks to elegant and accurate period designing, inventive use of camera and colour by cinematographer Giuseppe Rotunno, along with seamless editing from Claudio Cutry, all under perfectly paced direction of Faenza who leads his highly capable cast, the creative readings of Fenton and Richardson earning for them partitioned acting laurels in an always interesting film that remains savoury after multiple viewings.
