A collection of beautiful and thought-provoking short films
24 January 2004 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Picture Windows is a series of short films, each from a famous director. One film, Soir Bleu, is about a troupe of circus performers. A trapeze artist, abused by her husband, is loved by another man - a circus clown. A second film, Song of Songs, concerns a long-married couple, each of whom is having a dalliance on the sly. Ultimately, they face the consequences of their actions. A third film relates the story of a beautiful ballerina and her love for a poor street violinist. And so on.

These wonderful films are first rate in the aspects of acting, direction, and artistry. Each one is a small gem to ponder over and applaud. The ballerina's tale, especially, has an overwhelming beauty. Viewers may find it very difficult to locate this collection but those who stumble upon it will find it most satisfying indeed.
