A friend loaned me this movie…
An ode to the silent film era, and the emergence of talkies, it’s fabulous!
Made even more appealing by this…
I mean the dog (Uggie).
The people in the film were pretty good too.
The film channels much of what made silent films what they were: cameras, lenses, film speeds, aspect ratios, period hair and clothing,
Sound is used twice (the way color was in Schindler’s List), sparingly, to make a point.
Gorgeous little movie, wish they’d released it in our backwater…
well, hooray for DVDs.
