Secret Defence by Rivette
on 3 November 2010
This is the second film by Rivette I've seen. I had quite low expectations as I didn't like "Paris Nous Appartient" at all. But "Secret Defence", made over 30 years later, is a really good film (and maybe Rivette isn't a bad director after all?..).
The plot is based on a mystery: a father (powerful businessman) who died and his children who suspect foul play. Interestingly, being a suspense-film "Secret Defence" is almost 3 hours long, and moves in a slow tempo! I think this make it all the better, partly because - in contrast to all crap being made each year - here we have good actors and interesting persons and a non-predictable plot. Why would you like to speed up a movie that feels good to watch?
The transfer of this Artificial Eye DVD is ok or even good I think, at least it looked good on my epson projector (upscaled by a bluray player).
