Robbe-Grillet had to try his five-
thumbed hand at novels La Jal-
ousie, Dans le Labyrinthe, etc.),
screenwriting Last Year at
Menbad, and here, film direction.
L'Immortelle is a plotless,char-
;acterfiess disaster concerned (as
far as I can tell) with the chron-
ologically jumbled, distorted per-
ceptions of a confused mind.
Nothing makes much sense, iden-
tical (or are they almost identi-
cal???) scenes are repeated end-
lessly, and not even Resnais'
cinematic style is here this time
as a source of interest. When I
first saw The Immortal One-Fe-
minine a while back at Canter-
bury House, more than half the
audience left while \reels were
being changed - some, presum-
ably, because they were climbing
the walls, but most simply be-
cause they thought the film was
over.
-RICHARD GLATZER,
Socrates
Cinema Guild
Sat. & Sun.
Roberto Rossellini has always
been intrigued by the heroes of
history. His intention in dealing
with them, however,-has not been
to glorify them, but to human-
ize them. He finds, in his own
words, "that the surprising, ex-
traordinary, moving thing about
men is just that the great ac-
tions and achievements occur in
the same way as the ordinary
acts involved in living." Work-
ing in. a semi-documentary style,
he immerses his subjects in their
times in order to present an in-
teraction of character and cul-
ture, striving ultimately for his-
torical realism.
Socrates opens with the defeat
of Athens at the hands of Sparta.
Socrates, in the midst of t h e
ruins and in spite of the grow-
ing animosity towards him, goes
about life as usual. He visits the
market, carrying coins in h i s
mouth because togas have no
pockets, defies the orders of the
new people in power, witnesses
a religious sacrifice and ques-
tions the nature of, death, argues
with his wife, criticizes his fel-
low men. Finally he finds him-

self charged with being a threat
to society. At his trial he acts
as his own defense, but, despite
his efforts, he is sentenced to
death. Those who wished him out
of the way are gratified, those
who loved him are sad, embit-
tered, outraged. Socrates, though,
is relatively accepting of the sit-
uation. When his wife, Xanthippe,
complains that he will die un-
justly, he asks, "Would you be
happier to see me die guilty?"
The few critics who reviewed
Socrates when it came to t b e
United States were not hesitant
to use superlatives in describing
it. The script resulted from a
collaboration between Rossellini,
Jean-Dominique de la Rochefou-
cauld, and Plato. Thanks to this
last writer, what. the film loses
in visual spontanaiety (it resem-
bles a stage play) it regains in
dialogue. The film was not seen
by press time.
-DAVID GRUBER
His Girl Friday
Cinema II
Saturday
Take a very successful stage-
play called Front Page, change
the sex of the lead role from
male to female, have Howard
Hawks direct it as a "sophisti-
cated" comedy where the orig-
inal Front Page plot of life in
a big city newspaper office is re-
vised a bit to become a back-
drop for the old familiar bdy-
meets-girl, boy-loses-girl-to-in-
surance-man-from-Albany, boy-
connives-to-get-girl-back, w i t h
Cary Grant as the boy editor and
Rosiland Russell as the girl re-
porter (or the caricature of a
"career woman" as the case
may be), then speed up the dia-
logue and action to such a hec-
tic pace that the actors barely
have a chance to inhale between
lines, and presto! faster than you
can say "Columbia Pictures Pre-
sents" you have their 1940 re-
lease, His Girl Friday, w h i c h
really is an entertaining f i1 m
except that it is moving along
'so hysterically it doesn't seem
it will ever stop. And take a
'breath.
