    In tiny Anarene, Texas, in the lull between World War Two and the Korean Conflict, Sonny and Duane are best friends. Enduring that awkward period of life between boyhood and manhood, the two pass their time the best way they know how -- with the movie house, football, and girls. Jacy is Duane's steady, wanted by every boy in school, and she knows it. Her daddy is rich and her mom is good looking and loose. It's the general consensus that whoever wins Jacy's heart will be set for life. But Anarene is dying a quiet death as folks head for the big cities to make their livings and raise their kids. The boys are torn between a future somewhere out there beyond the borders of town or making do with their inheritance of a run-down pool hall and a decrepit movie house -- the legacy of their friend and mentor, Sam the Lion. As high school graduation approaches, they learn some difficult lessons about love, loneliness, and jealousy. Then folks stop attending the second-run features at the movie...

Reviews

Beautiful but very tedious.

Sometimes even the act of escape, from a prison or country, can be boring, mundane or routine. Bresson knew that, just as he knew that the act of stealing something from someone's pocket largely went unnoticed. Today refugees are crossing borders everywhere and are risking their lives in doing so but for a lot of the time, all they are doing is just walking or sitting by the roadside or eating or sleeping. The final hours, the sea journey, the race across the wall to escape the guards, that is where the 'excitement' comes in; that is where film-makers milk the situation in order to give audiences a buzz.

Fabrizio Ferraro, however, takes a different route in his remarkable and austere film "Les Unwanted de Europa", shot in stark black and white, in which the French philosopher Walter Benjamin is just one of many attempting to escape the threat of Nazism by illegally crossing the Pyrenees in 1940. Capture could mean death or imprisonment but mostly he and his companions just walk, silently, perfecting the art of the mundane.

Ferraro is another art-house director who, like Bela Tarr, believes in long-takes in which nothing very much happens; life and time just pass. Of course, this won't be to everyone's taste. Some will find it like watching paint dry but here the paint is in monochrome rather than in colour. No-one on screen 'acts'; they simply 'are', set down in this time and place. It's a beautiful looking film but like the act of escape shown here is mostly tedious and mundane. Action and excitement are for the multiplexes and the moguls; this is as it is.
