Original footage of the prosperous farming community of Glencoe Minnesota, 60 miles west of Minneapolis, was filmed in 1979 for a PBS documentary. But for the next six years Malle was too busy with other projects to finish this work. He returned in 1985 for a follow-up and found the community reacting to the mid eighties crisis of overproduction in farm country. with weekly foreclosures on family farms, and many families moving to the south, Malle documented a sense of frustration and apprehension from the same participants he had befriended in better times half a decade earlier.

(jp) wrote: Character development is poor. Hard to like the characters. "Emotional" scenes lack proper build up. Offers a very shallow view of love and marriage.
(au) wrote: I seem to be a bit of a fan of After Dark Films...the Independent horror film company. They had a festival here in Chicago, and I attended several movies of theirs during that. I enjoyed them. Some immensely. This film was very intriguing, but things don't really start developing until half way through. When they do, however, I was mesmerized, disgusted, and truly intrigued. Good job...NOT for Hollywood big budget lovers, though. Definitely Independent film quality...
(gb) wrote: [alguns spoilers] De todas as funes que podem ser desempenhadas por uma casa-assombrada, aquela que ocupa o centro de "The Changeling" assume uma das mais complexas e difceis de executar: a do casebre com vontade prpria, que no descansa enquanto no vir rectificados certos acontecimentos passados. Peter Medak d vida a essa fantasia com seriedade, classe e um constatvel cuidado com o seu principal personagem (o compositor em perodo de luto John Russell), ou no fosse esse interpretado pelo muito respeitvel George C. Scott. E tambm por no ser nada abandalhado que "The Changeling" ter conquistado o seu lugar no cinema de terror. Para mais, este filme de casa assombrada tem uma invulgar capacidade de nos reter na sua atmosfera durante a primeira hora, pelo menos, e para isso contribui tambm uma banda-sonora carregada de sons concebidos de encomenda para azucrinar o juzo (tal como nos discos mais horrendos de Scott Walker). Igualmente eficientes so vrias das imagens espectaculares que chegam quando o soalho de um quarto aberto para cavar um poo secreto. E afinal "The Changeling" at merece uma nota mais simptica do que aquela que tinha para dar.

(ca) wrote: This is an underrated, very funny film. It knows what it is and manages to be quite clever with its premise. When I noticed Brendan Fraser would be the lead I was apprehensive, but he proved to be an earnestly likable character and was pretty funny; in fact I liked pretty much all the characters and didn't even think the romance was too sappy. One issue I had was that Christopher Walken was not very "Walkeny."One of the so-called "bad" films that totally surpasses expectations.
(es) wrote: This is by far one of the best films ever made! Peter Sellers and Shirley MacLaine are truly amazing!! This movie came out in 1979 and the story is still relevant today. I could watch this film over and over again and never get bored. This was Peter Sellers last movie and every time I watch it I can't help but think what his life must have been like and what was going on in his head. It has been said by many, including Sellers, that he did not know who he was as a person, and that he had no identity. He was his characters, he went his whole life struggling with drugs, alcohol and other cast members / costars....trying to figure it all out.
(es) wrote: One of the few genuine exploitation classics of the 1970s, The Candy Snatchers is a film that succeeds where numerous others have failed - in that it effectively combines the sleazy realism of a low budget production with a solid script to produce a chilling piece of cinema. The plot follows the nefarious activities of a rag-tag group of wannabe criminals looking to make a quick buck by kidnapping a local jeweller's daughter (the titular Candy). Unfortunately things don't quite go to plan and the simmering tension present amongst the group some begins to boil. Tight pacing, dark in tone and ripe with youthful energy, Candy Snatchers produces wonders within its obviously limited resources. Despite the lack of acting experience the cast hold their own, with Director Trueblood's own son playing the spookily mute little boy who witnesses Candy's ordeal. Everything else is kept lean and trim which enables to move the film along even when it looks like it may stutter. Now available from Subversive in it's full, original form I recommend you go out and buy it.
