    Patrice Chéreau works cinematic and theatrical magic in this reworking of Joseph Conrad. Stylistic and almost operatic study of a marriage forged in Hell and where the most cruel action is simply to return to it. Brilliant and highly underrated film art.

    Dark, real and fabulously constructed. From the story The Return by Joseph Conrad. You will be turning it over in your mind for days after.

    This one finally popped up as being available on DVD a couple of years ago so I finally tracked it down. Was disappointed. It wasn't compelling enough compared to other period pieces.

    Intriguing usage of color to convey concept and emotion.

    Very intense and emotional. Not for the casual movie fan.
