The Turning

The project of turning a book of 17 short stories very loosely connected in the one movie is a daunting task. Producer Robert Connolly parceled the task of putting prose into film out to 17 different directors.

Each episode has different actors, even if in the book some characters reappear.  Since I had not read the book before seeing the film this did not disturb me. Because short films are all based on the same author you feel like watching the same voice.  The film is an amazing piece of art. Many times it is visually stunning. I highly recommend the film if you want to witness first class art. The only problem with the film is that it is too long. It could have stopped after two hours instead of having an intermission of 15 minutes before seeing another five short films.
