34 The List 2—15 December 1994

1 age of song and dance. Here is a selection of charming moments that didn't quite make the final cut. a bunch of set-pieces that will delight cornpletists and rekindle memories for fans. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I Theorem (18) (Pier Paulo Pasolini. Italy. 1968) Terence Stamp. Silvana Mangano. Massimo Girotti. Anne Wiazemsky. 98 rrrins. Pasolini's twin obsessions which Christianity and Marxism are brought searingly to life in this intense fable. featuring our Tel as a mysterious Christ figure. who creates spiritual. sexual and emotional upheavals within a wealthy family when he stays for a short time in their home. Enigmatic and powerful. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I The Third Man (PG) (Carol Reed. UK. 1949) Joseph Cotten. Alida Valli. Trevor Howard. Orson Welles. 104 mins. Post-war Vienna and pulp writer Joseph (‘otten moves through corruption on every corner to try to find his old mate llarry Lime. (’entral: MacRobert.

I Three Colours: lied (15) (Kt‘zysztof Kieslowski. Iirance/Switzjl’oland. 199-1) Irene Jacob. Jean-Louis Trintignant. 96 mins. Kieslowski's tricolour trilogy comes to a close with what may be his greatest masterpiece. A Swiss model (Jacob) discovers that a retired judge (Trintignant) is listening in to his neighbours' phone conversations; but instead of denouncing him. she too opens tip her innermost secrets. Superficial details are stripped away as the director concentrates on parallel lives and interwoven destinies. Glasgow: GI'T. Edinburgh: (‘ameo. I Threesome (18) (Andrew Fleming. US. 1994) Josh Charles. Lara Flynn Boyle. Stephen Baldwin. 93 mins. A serious. shy gay student and a slacker jock find themselves sharing a college donn with a girl whose name has caused a bureaucratic error. Pretty soon. they're working out their incompatible triangular desires behind closed doors. A film that dares to challenge. but barely rocks the boat. Threesome stumbles through some incredibly patronising scenes before finding a little more complexity. Far from psychological trtrth. however. Iidinburgh: Odeon. I Thumbelina (U) (Don Bltrth. US. 1993) Animator Bluth comes close to rivalling Disney with this charming fairy tale filled with little folk. princes. easy-to-follow messages and a Barry Manilow soundtrack. Young kids will love it and even the cynically hard-hearted may soften. Edinburgh: l-‘ilmhouse.
