All The Living and The Dead

Ah...I forget about this movie for long stretches and then remember it and feel that deep tug on my heart once again. John Huston was deathly ill during its production and one can imagine the emotions on the set as his daughter put that...experience into her role.

It is a lovely film and possibly the only sense made of James Joyce's work. Every scene a jewel...I put these here in their order and hope I do not ruin anyones enjoyment of a future viewing. It really should be watched in deep wintertime but...we shall enjoy it now while the sun can remove some of that chill.

Broken Vows – The Recitation “…and my fear is great that you have taken God from me…”
