Adagio1981

  • 2.7
Lawrence Jordan's rapturous live action short contemplates two nude figures in California idyll. They remain physically separated but Jordan's spellbinding cutting and tactile camerawork suggest a loosening of inhibition. Parisian fountains and classical statues signal the deep cultural bedrock for the filmmaker's ostensibly freewheeling portraiture.

I like that they remained 2 separate people happy in their lives alone, for the time being, with no plot required. Beautiful forms, though I'd like to see more of his to equal it out.

Really lovely. Erotic without being raunchy, an element like dance and yet calm and still. Music is just perfect, a fine performance of a really beautiful work.

We have a naked man, running, a naked woman posing - with sunglasses on. We have a fountain spurting high. We have a number of jumpy scenes pass by. Could not make out the theme. The woman was beautiful, though I didn't find her erotic. The man was just wierd somewhere.

2 hippies, having seen a phallic water fountain, fantasize about getting naked in a park in California. One dreams of cleaning herself, the other dreams of altering his perception of reality with a pipe. The end.

stunning

No dialoge and just view was boring and did not seem to provide art of film, do not like it.

Overdone. Subtlety is the art form not noise

Horrendous.

Music good, not excited (one way or any another) about the film.

Bellissimo!

Very tedious

ARTSY AND DATED, POOR EDITING

nice

Beautiful movie, beautiful woman, beautiful music

The most stupid film I've ever watched
