The Leopard-- Burt Lancaster 

Will

One of those kinda weird books that I got around to reading probably 10 years ago got to the end and read it again. It has a mood and atmosphere which I think Visconti captured andin which  Lancaster did pretty well, the size of the man was necessary and perhaps there wasn't an Italian or European actor of those dimensions available.

 

Soon after reading it I got hold of a DVD of the film with a commentary by professor Roland Caputo of Latrobe University. We had a brief exchange of emails in regards to what an interesting commentary he provided and a few observations of my own.

 

Would be an interesting candidate for an update, worth watching in tandem with The Great Beauty.

Toni Collette?

spot on

 

it's Toni in a 2003 indy Aus flick Japanese Story.

 

Unreal photography and sparse soundtrack that just builds and builds through the 2nd half of the movie to a point of choking the viewer (me at least YMMV).

Someone else will have to solve this one. I haven't a clue.

This one's from a great b&w movie out of Japan. I saw so many classic foreign films on SBS back in the day. I hope the new SBS movie channel shows us some when it commences broadcasting.

not a 100% shure, but it givese me a vibe of Rashomon

 

edit: although in Kurosawas Rashomon the main character is played by Toshiro Mifune and that ain't him. The hue/white balance/whatever isn't exactly the same either.

 

Drawing a blank really...
