EL CUARTO MANDAMIENTO (1942)

12 years, 3 months ago at Nov 23 13:31
The Magnificent Ambersons es el título original de esta película, nada que ver con el rídiculo "El cuarto mandamiento" español.

Sin ser la mejor película de su director, bajo mi punto de vista sí es comparable -e incluso superior- a su más prestigiosa Ciudadano Kane.

Según el propio Welles, su personal historia de la decadencia de una aristocrática ... read more

(OK) As elegant and rich in direction as 'Kane', but less ambitious, more natural and fluent. Splendour and decadence as theme and social backgrounds, informs the best stories. Besides that, the richess of each character, Agnes Moorehead jealousy and repentance for instance....

The young, handsome, but somewhat wild Eugene Morgan wants to marry Isabel Amberson, daughter of a rich upper-class family, but she instead marries dull and steady Wilbur Minafer. Their only child, George, grows up a spoiled brat. Years later, Eugene comes back, now a mature widower and a successful automobile maker. After Wilbur dies, Eugene again asks Isabel to marry him, and she is receptive. But George resents the attentions paid to his mother, and he and his aunt Fanny try to sabotage the romance.
Release date: 10 July 1942

" Notes: To be honest, it has been ages since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point.

Films I've seen on celluloid in the digital era (369 movies items)

"FORMAT: 35mm CONDITION: ★★½ NOTES: 1997 BFI reissue. Many noticeable damages mainly through splicing, most prominent in the first and second reels. The second reel commended around five frames late, starting with a black screen and ending with an overlap. Changeovers included purple marker etchings, crosses, cigarette burns and rings, but appeared to have been timed at the exact original points. DATE: December 13th 2020 CINEMA: BFI LOCATION: Southbank"
