A Film by PAUL YULE
“Yule’s direction is an affair of refined visual compositions. There was a real pleasure in the combination of his images and Elgar’s music – the composer disappearing into the mist in a slow fade, or the layered profiles of his dying wife and Fox’s well-mannered grief. Selma Alispahic was good as d’Aranyi, too. An unresolved cadence rather than a completed work.”
