(aka 'The Valley' or 'The Valley (Obscured by Clouds)

directed by Barbet Schroeder
France 1972

 

  Lush, sensual, and aurally hypnotic, this renowned cult classic from Barbet Schroeder (Barfly, Reversal of Fortune, More, Maitresse) was shot by the legendary Nestor Almendros, and scored by Pink Floyd. Set in the rainforest of New Guinea, a restless diplomat's wife, played by Bulle Ogier (Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, Maitresse), goes in search of a rare bird's priceless feathers. In the process she meets up with a group of hippies seeking spiritual and sexual enlightenment. Together they are transformed when they encounter the indigenous Mapuga tribesman and the secret "valley of the gods.

Comments:

Beautiful lavish greens on this anamorphic DVD from HVE, but unfortunately it suffers from some severe 'combing' in horizontal pans as it was not progressively transferred (each frame individually). Bare extras especially considering HVE/Criterion standards with nothing but some liner notes. Original audio and excellent subtitles. An interesting film and probably the best you may see it with English subtitles.   out of
