I Hate Chocoate
But I love this film.
I have deep admiration for Dirk Bogarde. He catalises this film, which is - if I may be so bold - a 'Gesamtkunstwerk' (a 'total work of art'). Yet, it seems to have been forgotten, overlooked, or misunderstood.
Michelangelo Antonioni's, "The Passenger" (1975) is the closest spiritual analogue to this darkly whimsical journey.
Though this novel and film are set during the Weimar Republic, the prologue to that second trans-Europian virus, this is an enduring fable.
Here we are... in a period of history.
I am here.
But wish to be elsewhere. This is impossible.
Then I shall... be ANOTHER PERSONA.
