"Yksinkertainen mutta vallankumouksellinen independent-elokuvan maihinnousu, joka vielä tänäkin päivänä tuntuu uudelta ja tuoreelta improvisoivien näyttelijöiden ja tylyn kuvaustyylinsä vuoksi."
View all Shadows reviews
John Cassavetes’s directorial debut revolves around a romance in New York City between Lelia (Lelia Goldoni), a light- skinned black woman, and Tony (Anthony Ray), a white man. The relationship is put in jeopardy when Tony meets Lelia’s darker-skinned jazz singer brother, Hugh (Hugh Hurd), and discovers that her racial heritage is not what he thought it was. Shot on location in Manhattan with a mostly nonprofessional cast and crew, Shadows is a penetrating work that is widely considered the forerunner of the American independent film movement.
