What a good idea for a thread Fernando. I loved The Rules of the Game when I watched it, I'm glad you liked it too.
Yesterday, to follow on from the book I'm reading I watched Exstacy with Hedy Keisler/Lamarr and Albert Mog. Well, it's realitively tame today, it plays almost like a silent with very little dialogue. Hedy plays a newly married bride who's husband is impotent, as she gets steadily more dissatisfied she seperates and prepares to divorce her husband, she goes for a morning horse ride and the famous swim is filmed, she meets a road worker who has rescued her clothes after her horse ran away with her clothes on his back. She sits with him and that night visits him, the second famous scene, the scene of the exstacy is shownMuch is made of imagery, shoes on the husband, horses, nature, flies on fly paper, too much imagery in some places, sometimes the point is taken too far. It is quite tame today, the naked scene is glimpse and you miss it, the most you see is her naked breasts, the lovemaking scene too is tame. The film works as a mostly silent story of a young girl's sexual awakening. Hedy is more naturally beautiful than in Algiers, less makeup and a woman on the cusp of womanhood rather than the woman of her Hollywood films.
