FTV:14:Seven Mysteries (1957) 6

View on the film:

Enticing the audience with a eye-catching opening 4 minutes overlapping montage of ghosts from J-Horror folk legends setting the stage for a anthology film, director Goro Kadono & cinematographer Hiroshi Suzuki instead take a step back, in order to lean in a more Fantasy direction, with the un- credited jaunty score emphasising the fantastical,and giving the final ghostly melle a oddly comedic tone. Taking on Akira Sugawa’s short story Seven Wonders of Honjo,the adaptation by Otoya Hayashi and Nagayoshi Akasada (none credited on IMDb) never quiet blends the Fantasy and the samurai tale fully together,with the magical “ Tanuki” coming off as a mere add on to the samurai family drama wandering on.

Bergman's least favourite of his films, this thriller is from far removed from his famous meditative work, but stylistically it has a lot of interest. Erik Nordgren's score is atmospheric and Gunnar Fischer's cinematography is exquisite with the influence of American noir heavily felt in the high contrast compositions and moody shots of characters only partially illuminated by window blinds. Too bad about the messy plot and lifeless characters though.

53. Kvinnors väntan a.k.a. Waiting Women (1955)
54. Nära livet a.k.a. Brink of Life (1958)
Took in a Bergman double feature yesterday... Probably not the best idea for my mental state. They actually thematically work very well together though, both being a series of conversations between women sharing their experiences and contemplating their lives. Waiting Women is focused around the idea of marriage while Brink of Life focuses on motherhood. Both are considered minor Bergman but honestly they contain many of the same hallmarks of raw emotion and nuanced character interaction that Bergman's most successful films contain.

This begins well with picturesque shots of the title city's skyline that look equally as sumptuous in stark black and white as in the similar shots in Woody Allen's Manhattan. The streets look amazing also with Melville's camera often favouring the neon lights and bright signs that illuminate the nighttime streets. The plot is intriguing at first too, but soon becomes less engrossing and ultimately more like the sort of plot of a second-rate noir.

FTV:15:Tayna vechnoy nochi (1956) 6.

Image

Diving deep into the waters of Atlantis, directors Dmitriy Vasilev & Abram Room bring a hard Sci-Fi to land, in Atlantis not being filled with underwater people, but instead being a hub for brightly coloured, radioactive new species of plants and regular-sized fish. Wiping the screen clean at each new discovery, the directors stand back in dour wide-shots giving the scientists plenty of room to display their expert sight. For having a underwater Sci-Fi final, the screenplay by Igor Lukovskiy is sadly fairly dry,where aside from a coda saying all the Soviet scientists work will be spread “Among the people”, Lukovskiy keeps things straight-lace,with the scientists staying stoic even when finding radio-activity underwater, as they sail out on the eternal night.

Most of the chaos is fairly easy to predict here and several sequences (e.g. trying to back the trailer into a garage) go on for way too long, however, Arnaz is good throughout as the increasingly frustrated husband. He gets some great bug-eyed moments as well as some hilarious bits and pieces - in particular, a pantomime routine as he performs gymnastics to use the trailer shower. Ball is less funny and given less chance to flex her comic muscles.

Starring Peter as Le Chiffre, this very first adaptation of the Ian Fleming novel is not without its points of interest, but pales against both the 2006 film and delightfully offbeat 1967 take. Barry Nelson is certainly adequate in the lead role, and there is an intense bit where he discusses plans with Felix while pretending to teach him cards. The whole thing feels very truncated though (only the casino part of the story is intact) and the ending is abrupt.

So glad you loved this -- it's a little favorite of mine, great music.
It was fantastic... the music was phenomenal (esp. Hazel Scott, wow), I really felt some of the chemistry between the two leads, and something about Tiller's character I found myself identifying with strongly. Gabin in particular was great in a rather low-key way (and he was part of the reason I watched Le Plaisir last night). I might actually rewatch this sooner than later. If it gets elevated to a perfect 10 I wouldn't be surprised and it would be joining relatively elite company with regards to my favorites, if that were the case. Really great film.

This has several interesting elements, with the nun a particularly fascinating character given how her behaviour outside the convent conflicts with her religious views. Philippe Lemaire also plays a manipulative and shallow human being well. It is over halfway in though before the pair properly meet and none of their actions feel credible. The motivations of Irène Galter as the younger sister are also wildly inconsistent. Uncomfortable views on rape too.

The basic idea is not bad with some sharp satire as all of the nobleman's relatives approve of him killing his rich uncle for the inheritance since it would be beneath them to actually try to earn money like commoners. Alas, this satire is never at the forefront with the film instead quickly becoming a re-tread of The LadyKillers as all of the murder plans end up going awry while the intended victim remains oblivious. Repetitive and rather predictable.

While the title promises clever scheming, deception and trickery to get their desired men, this offers none of that as their 'plan' never goes further than living in a posh apartment. Marilyn Monroe at least gets some funny moments thanks to her refusal to wear prescription glasses; Lauren Bacall also offers a droll comment about "that old fellow in African Queen", but Thoroughly Modern Millie did the whole search for a rich husband trifle far better.

This was the film that catapulted Marilyn Monroe to stardom and it is easy to see why; she does a great job playing ditzy and seducing rich men left, right and centre while displaying a quiet intelligence on the side, pointing out that women marrying men for their money is not much worse than men marrying women for their good looks. Not everything about the film works, but the glitzy costumes are great and young George Winslow is a lot of fun.
