The movie just doesn't hold together... And yet we sit in this failed movie and give our attention to Ingrid Bergman, and there is a certain consolation.
A bittersweet masterwork about the raging and frustrated passions of old age.
Vincente Minnelli disowned his last movie, A Matter of Time (1976), when it was taken away from him by its producers, American International Pictures, and after its initial release it pretty much disappeared from view.
Strange, inventively styled drama shows Minnelli's flair for imagery and films about young people trying to enter the adult world.
Minnelli's very last film stars his own daughter Liza (their only collaboration) as an awestruck chamber maid inspired by the adventures of an aging contessa (Ingrid Berman) to embark on her own fantasy journey.
So much talent behind and in front of the camera to lay such a big egg. The whole thing reeks of decay and that seeps into the tenor of the film. Liza is all over the place and only registers in a positive way twice, in the final hospital scene and most of all during the musical performance of the song Do It Again-really her only powerful moment. Of interest more for its cast of second generation performers than any merit or entertainment value of the actual film. Beside Liza there's a brief appearance of Isabella Rossellini in her screen bow and as Liza's cousin Tina Aumont, who was the daughter of B movie star Maria Montez and Jean-Pierre Aumont. Nonsensical mess was the unfortunate swan song of both Vincente Minnelli and Charles Boyer. Such a missed opportunity.
