Eternity Glows As it Slows
16 August 2017 | by krocheavSee all my reviews

As an artistic look at the seemingly idle rich (there are no visible means of support) that covers a century of interrelated lives in Paris, this movie is about as eye popingly gorgeous as it gets. Highly praised Vietnamese born director Tran Anh Hung and Cinematographer Mark Lee Bing, along with the director's wife, Tran Nu Yen Khe as art director and narrator (every so often there are surprise dialogue scenes) create a sumptuous, highly romanticized treat for the senses but offer little else in the way of a fully involving story or pace. If you like dreamy pastoral images, National Trust Properties and costumes, all set to beautiful classical piano music and song from the conveyed eras, then you won't mind the snail pace. From the numerous long shots (some that seem to serve little purpose) it looks somewhat like Editor Mario Battistel may have had most of his suggestions overruled...?

While wars come and go (unseen) taking with them some of the cream of this family's youth - their life at home is nothing short of curiously blissful. The difficulty of life and death struggles with common diseases of the day is harshly brought home in all its tragedy. Still, we follow these otherwise blessed families as they glide through the years up to a more modern era. Looking for something to slow you down (or help you sleep?) it's here in Eternity.
