[a.k.a. Il Sole anche di notte
The Brothers Taviani
Star: Julian Sands
, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Massimo Bonetti, Nastassja Kinski
Nastassja's latest movie confirms her
post-"Revolution" retreat from Hollywood, with another classy
French-German-Italian co-production. Also starring Sands (dubbed into Italian), the
first third is the part of most interest to Kinski-watchers as she plays
the woman who causes Sands to enter a monastery. The rest of the film deals
with his struggle to achieve peace and tranquility in the face of all that
fortune can hurl at him, as despite his efforts he becomes a living saint.
Art-house fodder, certainly, and while more Kinski and less clothes might
have helped, it's another film she needn't be ashamed of and should help
her commercial rehabilitation.
