In Absentia

A woman sits alone on a chair at a table in a room on one of the top floors of an asylum. Bright spot lights dot the night, sometimes shining on her window. She sharpens pencils and writes on a page in a copy book. The pencil point often breaks under her fingers' force. She places broken points outside the window on the sill. A satanic figure is somewhere nearby, animated but of straw or clay, not flesh. She finishes her writing, tears the paper from the pad, folds it, places it in an envelope, and slips it through a slot. Is she writing to her husband? "Sweetheart, come." Written by

A woman is sitting alone on a chair in a silent room with her hands clenched, her tears dropping, her pencil point broken constantly, and her face pale. For whom could she write in such a desperate manner? . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Simeon D (it) wrote: Has a very fresh feel to it. Saw this at #271 on a "Top 1000 Movies Ever" list and thought it'd be worth a look. It's essentially a poetic/naturalist/neorealistic retelling of Sunrise, if that makes any sense. In everyman terms- its simple, the performances are splendid, and F. W. Murnau delivers elegantly shot exotic local cinematography of waterfalls and jungles and native festivals, and the beauty comes from this simplicity. The ending made the movie for me. Not in the same league as Murnau's Faust or Nosferatu or Sunrise, since those are all haunting and strewn with shadows. More like a National Geographic program with a "star crossed lovers" storyline. Since it's a silent film, expect your interest to be eroded by slowness, but nevertheless it's worth seeing. 89/100

Gregg A (fr) wrote: Solid flick. A real tough guys cast too!!! Plays fast and loose with the "Mad Trapper incident' of the early 30's but it's still worth a look to see Marvin and Weathers playing Mounties! Pretty looking film too. And I have to ask... is there a better bad guy then Ed Lauter?
