MARIE CURIE THE COURAGE OF SCIENCE (2016) New York Jewish Film Festival 2017

Biography of Marie Curie the only person to win two Nobel Prizes in two different sciences is an odd duck film. Very mannered and deliberately done the film strives very much to be an art film.Filmed at times to be a kind of documentary

The film has a very odd feel, due I think in large part to the cameras limited movement and choice of angles which kind of shackle us to a very deliberate and limited point of view, I never had a sense of being in a real place with real people. It felt more like a filmed stage play or theatrical experience where the audience has a limited ability to see the world of the action. The result was I never really connected with what was happening on the screen.

The film plays January 24th
