"George Stevens keeps the 3h running time compelling by alternating very well between character drama, war drama and suspenseful parts. Although Millie Perkins is older than the title characters, she convinces as Anne because she shows the vivacity that makes her so entrancing. In the acting department she is outclassed tho by her older peers. Most impressive of all in this movies is the beautiful cinematography."

"Like many I suspected a more action heavy samurai movie based on the intriguing title. But I got a good movie that shifts very well from the comedic tones at the start to more dramatic tone at the end with social class commentary mixed in."

"This early feminist movie about a single female doctor who has to chose between her career and the man she loves, was way ahead of its time in its progressive message. That the movie stil engages now, is a testament to Grémillon’s directing and Presle‘s acting skills. This is a very ambigious drama in which we both feel sad for the loss of her love, but also glad for her future happinesses. The movie is bolstered by being shot mostly on location, showing life on a Breton island in the 50s."
48 6% Fear and Desire (1953) - Mar 10, 2019
"It's understandable why Kubrick disowned this. This clearly is a pretty poor movie. But the directing and cinematography are the least of the movies problems. Kubrick, like many debutants, is very ambitious and not all of his experiments work. The production design is very cheap, but one could get over that. What drags this down completely is the horrible writing by someone who has no clue about how people talk or act. Which is n't helped by some terrible acting also."
