Movie Diary 4/16/2015

Camouflage (Krzysztof Zanussi, 1977). The director himself talked about his great film at the Edinburgh Filmhouse. He took a photograph of the audience and revealed that he uses 35 mm. film – in his still camera, at least. I had a chance to ask him about the very ending of the movie, which I have always loved. Thankfully I did not have a copy of my long-winded programme note from 30 years ago to press into his hand.

The Water Diviner (Russell Crowe, 2015). A very old-fashioned kind of movie, but perhaps one expected that from Mr. Crowe. He plays an Aussie father who goes to Gallipoli in 1919 to search for the remains of his soldier sons. (full review 4/24)
