say that i really liked the film. The movie is about a man,
i believe a russian who is played by hutton and he falls in
love with an italian woman, but hutton decides to have an affair
with a blonde woman which costs him his true love with the italian woman. This is a slow moving picture, and it is long,
but i recommend it because life is not like the movies.
Things go slow, and the ending is quite interesting...
Sometimes love is hard to find, and when it is found sometimes
for the wrong reasons people just let it slip away with sloppy
incidents that really are to negative. Hutton is fantastic
in this motion picture. i believe the author who wrote this
book is russian, great job! I recommend one buying"torrents of spring."
marketed in the ideal manner, for the majority of the
public, because it suggests a narrowly focused film about
a passionate relationship between 2 nobles, the lady
played by Nastassja Kinski, and the man by Timothy Hutton.
In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. This
movie is not narrowly focused on a passion between a man
and a woman. It tells a story that entertains a lot more,
immensely more, from many its many other aspects, that
were crafted into the motion picture. And these other
aspects are what makes this film easily surpass the
commercial, cheap movies, too often manufactured these
It will help, if the viewer can relate to a sentimental
story, enjoys the enormous "eye-candy" of the lifestyle of
nobles (at least as we would have us believe) in the 17th,
18th and 19th centuries in Europe. There's tremendous
filming of historical monuments, castles, the typically
stone-laid streets of cities in France, Portugal, Spain,
Germany, Italy. It really takes the viewer back in time,
in an incredible way, 300 years. In this way, this picture
has an outstanding dream-like quality, for the viewer,
surreal, as well, at times. There are many outstanding,
luxurious, opulent clothes, filming locations (e.g. the
theater, where the two assist a piece) that are
interesting in themselves to those who are not habituals
of those environments. The horse and carriage is the means
of transportation, something no longer seen since 100
years now, in modern civilization.
Next, if the visual beauty of this film is not enough to
satisfy the viewer, recurring over 90 mins (from the
elements previously mentioned), there are the audio
aspects to consider. The music is varied in styles, but
extremely serious, convincing, historical and credible in
its choices, and in the way that it is used in the
picture, such as in the case of the gypsy wedding, the
Slavic folk dances, the chamber pieces that are more
Germanic in nature, etc.
Perhaps the merit of the actors in this movie, is their
moderation of dialogue, and their subtlety. Clearly, the
director understood this movie, was not intellectual in
nature, not at all. It was sentimental, visual, auditive.
Excess talk would distract, and be redundant to the
message conveyed to the spectator, which is to bring forth
a "dream" of times gone by, a utopia perhaps, of what
constituted the life of nobility and / or monarchy.
Kudos to Nastassja Kinski, who not only is effective in
her subtle manner of acting, but she brings forth, to the
screen, the pleasure, a certain thrill of "taking part"
in those scenes, as far as I could tell.
