Better than the Turn of the Screw!
I saw this film in 1979 and I never forgot it. The way the scenes are set up after old master paintings. In one scene Rembrandt appears briefly at the door in
wonderful chiaroscuro. The whole film seemed like one moving masterpainting. The horror is the better for being implied as in The turn of the Screw. It is a pity that filmmakers like this are so little known.
I would pay over the odds to get this on DVD. Filmmaking this excellent doesn't happen often enough. I totally agree with
