The prince went slowly through the forest. His beautiful horse was silent. The sky was taking on the color of roses. "Will I be in time?" the prince wondered. He remembered what the magician had told him. "Night is your only enemy. Once it has cast its cloak of darkness over the world and you cannot tell the shadow of a dog from that of a wolf, you will know it is too late and that your beautiful lady is lost forever. Hurry if you love her." The prince's heart was pounding.
Looking at Kristen Scott Thomas I thought of Julie Christie, Ingrid
Bergman, Helen Mirren, Liv Ullman and a number of other actresses that
managed to be transparent on the screen. Transparent in the best sense
of the word, meaning we could actually see the invisible. Two sisters,
a husband, two adopted Asian girls and a past, a recent past an
overwhelming past painted black but with a white coat of compassion.
Fame novelist turned film director Philip Claudel's debut is surprising
to say the least.His assured hand and sensibility makes me want to see
his next opus with a certain amount of trepidation. Scott Thomas's
performance is among the very best I've seen all year.
