  • Characteristics of the French Film Genre

    I've been searching both my memory and online for the word that describes this movie. I have seen many French movies, and I can describe what happens to make a film a French movie, but I cannot remember the term which applies to it. This movie genre is common almost exclusively to French movies, as if pathos is a reqirement for good drama. It contains great passion, both exultation and barrel-bottom bereavement. I have heard that the French phrase "le petit mort" applies to everything in life. And yes, even especially to the act of lovemaking, for immmediately after the phases lovemaking goes through, the lovers end up spent and go through "the little death."You will notice the gleam in the eye of Mr. Clay to bring about the events which result in a climatic "le petit mort" for the lovers. And it happens to cooincide with Mr. Clay's own demise. In Mr. Wells's case you might want to call it "le grande mort." So what we have is a story which like holding up a mirror to a mirror. The young lovers night of passion is the reverse image of Mr. Clay's bereavement for his lost youth and the final end of his life. His soul is free now that he has derived his own justice.

    this is an art film and the person who wrote the synopsis never saw this movie. It is worth seeing at least once and another time for good measure, Orson Wells may have been older but his film was as creative as ever.

  • The Imomortal Question

    I just viewed "The Immortal Story" for the first time. Being a huge Welles fan, I expected more, or maybe less.I was bored and then raptured and then bored again. Mr. Welles' genius kept pulling me in and then dropped me only to pull me in deeper. I was so relieved when the story ended only to find myself wanting more. I think I will ponder this film for many years to come, and maybe this is what Mr. Welles' intended. I think I liked it or I liked hating it. Can someone please shed some light!
