Spanning 18 years in an Iranian women's prison, this follows two women: the new prison warden, a tough as nails devout Muslim who has served in the army on the Iraqi front, and a young midwife, Mitra, who is serving her sentence for killing her mother's abusive husband. In the early years, Mitra is repeatedly punished as the warden tries to break her. This includes punishment for delivering a baby in the prison cell while all of the prison staff has taken shelter during an Iraqi bombing. The warden's attitude starts to change after 8 years, when Mitra tries to protect a new inmate from rape at the hands of her older cellmates. When the baby comes back in 1991 as a 17 year old delinquent, Sepideh, the warden respects Mitra enough to protect the girl.
A dark and pessimistic masterpiece, set in a rainy Normandy seaside resort, photographed by Henri Alekan, with Gérard Philipe at his saddest. On a first viewing you're probably more absorbed in solving the mystery of the hero's past., on re-watching you notice the masterful script, in short, a perfect and quite unknown film. Check the comments and screenshots on the tracker.
IMDB: It's 1948,the French "nouvelle vague" is yet to come,and nevertheless "une si jolie petite plage" seems to announce the era. Gerard Philippe's character might be the missing link between Carné's desperate characters of the thirties ("le jour se lève","Quai des brumes")and the mistreated rebels of the late fifties/early sixties(Truffaut's Antoine Doinel ,Franju's "la tête contre les murs" hero). The landscape has rarely been so depressing that in this Allégret's masterwork;like Poe's "Usher house",it seems to influence the characters,to rub off on the hero .These desolate shores never seem to see the sun,the inn itself is hostile .For the hero,this is the end of the road,he has become a murderer,and having lost all his illusions,he comes back to this eating-house where he used to work as a child (he was an orphan)As the rain which keeps falling down,bad luck is here to stay:a young boy ,an orphan too,is working now in this miserable place and the hero urges him not to accept this miserable life with no future in sight,but in vain.The servant (Madeleine Robinson) tries to do the same for the young man whom she loves.All in vain.In the last pictures,a breathtaking tracking out takes us faraway from this doomed place as if the director himself wanted to escape such a darkness.Gérard Philippe used to regard this film noir as one of his very best.
Crazy Gerard Pires short about a family that came to grandma, couple of gangsters, policemens, lot of screams, headbutting, nude girls etc.
Cox lets Vincent van Gogh speak for himself and accompanies this with shots of landscapes, places and his paintings. Sounds a bit silly at first sight and the film was a total flop when it came out (as you can hear in the accompanying doc). But the result moved me to tears. The concept of this film is daring in its simplicity, and it's executed very very well. --flipflink
