Based on the last volume of Marcel Proust’s monumental novel A la recherche du temps perdu, this sumptuous adaptation demands all of Ruiz’s visual inventiveness and technical virtuosity. Proust looks back on his life, loves and memories shaped by the decadent French aristocracy amongst whom he wandered, capturing their monstrosity with his brilliant novelist’s eye.
A great work... a cine-literary miracle. For Heaven's sake. GO!
