Pure poetry...aesthetically and in its non-linear immediacy
18 August 2002 | by (Santa Monica, CA) – See all my reviews

If you prefer movies that are straight narrative, plot and action centered...stay away from this film. This poetic work, by Jay Anania, is for those who can allow the images, the characters to reach them at an inner reality level.

Diane Thwaite, a gorgeous, willowy, intelligent woman (played by Pauline Porizkova) becomes haunted by the inkling of some event she may or may not have experienced over 20 years ago. Her journey to piece out the puzzle, although it involves an actual happening, is largely an inner one of self-discovery. We see her slowly move from a chilly, laconic woman, unable to respond to a man who obviously cares for her, to someone who finally is willing to reach out, touch and be touched emotionally by another person who brings Diane a simple grace, an acceptance of life as it was dealt her.

The images in this movie, thanks to Cinematographer Oliver Bokelberg, are intimate and stunning...at times reminiscent of an Edward Hopper painting and at others like a Japanese landscape. He brings us up close and personal to the characters so that we can't escape their presence, their actuality.

This is a rare and rewarding treat for anyone interested in cinematic grammar skillfully used, but not spelled out
