United States | 2012 | Terrence Malick
The exquisite new film from the director of Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line, and Tree of Life employs sublime visuals, snippets of classical music, and snatches of dialogue and voiceover narration to tell a skeletal story of a young French woman (Olga Kurylenko) and an American man (Ben Affleck) who are happy in France but grow apart in America. The actors and camera never stop moving. Like Malick’s other movies, this lyrical work is both a paean and a prayer; he seeks the eternal in the evanescent. With Javier Bardem and Rachel McAdams.
112 min. 35mm. Some subtitles.
