Flight of the Red Balloon (2008)

Like Hou Hsiao-hsien's more recent work, Flight of the Red Balloon moves a little more toward international accessibility and away from his early, uniquely Taiwanese stories. It's of a piece with Café Lumiere (2003), for which Hou was invited to Japan to make a film in tribute to Yasujiro Ozu. For the new film, Hou comes to France to pay tribute to Albert Lamorisse's legendary and beloved short film The Red Balloon (1956). (It's not a terribly surprising move, given that French critics and audiences have supported Hou more passionately and for much longer than their American counterparts.) read more...

    Diary of a Country Priest (1950)

    One could say that 1999 was the year of Bresson. He hadn't made a movie in 17 years, but a retrospective of his work traveled all over the country to sold-out houses. On December 22, 1999, at the age of 98 (or 92, I've seen it listed as both) and just before the turn of the century, Bresson died. read more...

    Voyage to the Beginning of the World (1997)

    90-year-old Manoel De Oliveira's Voyage to the Beginning of the World is a lovely look at memories, the past, and endings. The great Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni, in his last role, is a movie director named Manoel working on location in Portugal. Both he and his lead actor, Alfonso (Jean-Yves Gautier), take trips into their pasts; Manoel emotionally, and Alfonso literally, as he visits his elderly aunt for the first time. It's slightly talky, but beautifully autumnal, oddly relaxing and very moving. read more...
