This movie should almost be viewed as the "let's-get-real" respond to "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", a movie that probably still should not receive made in the U.S. As a snapshot of "swinging London" in the sixties, "Joanna" has it all. But Donald Sutherland absolutely steals this film as King Peter Sanderson; his strange, wonderful, secular soliloquy on a Moroccan beach at sunset still provokes both goose pimples and tears. South African actress Genevieve Waite, who plays the wide-eyed heroine, was declared persona non grata in her native country after making this film, solely because of her love scenes with Calvin Lockhart (she soon emigrated to the U.S. and married John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas). All in all, a strange, wonderful, campy, mystic trip to the sixties.
I remember this movie as one which helped to define my life in college in the late 60's. I gotta have seen it along with my mates 10 times. We had the songs memorized and would sing them everywhere. I can't really understand the negative comments about this film. I would really like to search a copy out there somewhere so I should see it again. Does anyone have a copy?
Michael Sarne wrote and directed this odd, sometimes-charming, sometimes-not chronicle of a wide-eyed art student in '60s London who falls in with a decadent crowd. Helium-voiced Genevieve Waite is like a cross between Anne Heche and Shirley Temple. She has fantasies of bathing nude in a pond full of lilies and being dried off by her girlfriend dressed as a maid, and soon one featuring the same mate being strangled by her lover. "Joanna" is incongruous: Sarne is in love with old-fashioned trappings and modern techniques. Some of his shots are delectable (Waite crossing a bridge at sunset, or running down a pathway lined with trees), but the film's eye-candy needs something substantial to go with it. As to Waite's Joanna, I never understood the leading hero or felt anyone on-screen did either (at one point, the girlfriend tells to Joanna, "I don't sleep around as much as you do", but we never receive the impression that Joanna is promiscuous--she seems only to wish real love). Donald Sutherland gives the film's only solid performance as a fey King and the sharp, canny editing keeps the picture popping. Otherwise, the film is just a mod bauble, and only a tip of real cleverness is left behind. ** from ****
