Keep travelling around and leave no memory, no trail...
5 March 2004 | by shu-fenSee all my reviews

Film helps the sales of a book but seldom vice versa. Not until today I got to know that Max Frisch was so famous and valued in Germany, though heavy European style can be sensed. In town, amongst all the public and university libraries, we can only have three worn-out copies (English translation) in total. The last read date perhaps is 1960, who knows? Sorry, we are not into the book. If it's not the movie, no one here would know who Frisch is. Gotta read the book to see what it's actually about.

I like beautiful things. Beautiful scenery of so many countries between Europe and South America, lovely love story, beautiful Julie, still hunky Tom, Greek tragedy, why not? When I watched this in 1991, I felt so happy to see young Julie's sweet smiles and the reverse oedipal expression. Even the Chinese name is tantalizing, "A Glassy Rose": something pretty, smooth and shiny but fragile, just like the relationship amongst Walter, Hannah and Sabeth.

Walter is a chaser, he got lots to do one after one, one after one until his heart was fateful hitched tight by a young girl. Voyager should be without legs, they should keep flying on because once they stop and tread on the ground, that would be lethal.
