A Masterpiece of Cinema,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Long Day Closes  [DVD] (DVD)
Through the use of music,soundtracks of films,minimal dialogue,imaginative lighting and camerawork,the director Terence Davies recreates the lost world of his childhood in 1950s Liverpool. The film is nostalgic but never sentimental and Davies has the marvelous gift of making the mundane poetic.Quite simply a masterpiece and a film that deserves to be better known. It should be in anybodies 100 best films of all time: it's certainly in mine.
