Even if it lacks the emotional power of Manuel, Time Regained is a lot closer to Ruiz's best work than it is to his worst.
All about remembering (cinema not least), this luxurious bath in the river of time is, to lift a phrase from Proust, consecrated to "the miracle of an analogy.
The best moment in the film is not in fact from Time Regained, but is the best moment in my favorite of the books, volume five, The Captive.
...he envisaged Proustian time not as a private sensation, but as a fully external, physical and objective "dimension"...This is what makes his Time Regained both hallucinatory and concrete, wayward and exact.
The stream-of-consciousness structure effectively captures a mind lost in thought; what it doesn't effectively create, however, is drama.
A crashing bore.
Moody, opulent, and just decadent enough, Ruiz's film is elegant all over and perverse around the edges, just as it should be.
Inventive and astounding.
A film that captures the richness of Proust's writing and the peculiarity of his sensibility through an array of unlikely imagery and staging techniques.
The best way to experience Time Regained is to let each vignette become an oar for rowing across the sea of Proust's memories.
Ruiz gracefully weaves through flashbacks triggered by sights, sounds, and thoughts, effortlessly ricocheting from remembrance to remembrance.
I can't fault the acting. These folks were trying..but it was terribly boring.
