film night at chez fou

Watched the Princess and the Warrior last night. Very lyrical, especially compared to the other film I know by this director, Run, Lola, Run. Interesting, too, was the interview included on the DVD. Both for the content and for how clear it made the otherwise unmentioned relationship with his unnamed editor.

I don't know if I would have liked it as well in the theatre. I hate crying in front of people, and I think I've mentioned that stories with/about transfigurative or redemptive love are usually guaranteed to make me cry.

As different as it is from RLR, tP&tW still carries the theme of the weight of small actions - how tiny the pivot point in a life can be. Magnitude, perspective, chance, fate. Trust, and betrayal, family, loyalty...

I recommend it.
