The L-Shaped Room Reviews:

The characters in the oddly appealing drama are so deliciously flawed and the texture is so utterly British art. Leslie Caron is underrated as a dramatic actor--having made a name for herself in musicals--but she shines in this one. Her performance is reminiscent of the hero she played in "The Subterraneans." She is excellent as the tortured free-spirit who stumbles. Other standout is Brock Peters. You feel the closeness of his room when he is lying in bed, talking to Jane through the wall. In fact, the entire boarding house feels real, seedy and full of dashed hopes. You ache for the pain and loneliness every person on thehouse endures--I felt myself like a resident in this menagerie. The direction is taut, spare and real. I would have liked to have learned more about Toby's background, what drove him to this place. But I suppose a nice movie is supposed to leave a zone for the viewers imagination.


I was a tender 14 years old in 1962, when I accompanied my mentor (my high school Spanish teacher) to an art house film theater in Greenwich Village to see this film. My only previous encounter with Leslie Caron had been in the wonderfully entertaining movie "Gigi". I gotta say, this two hour spectacle of unrelieved misery came as quite a shock to me. I left the theater thinking I had just seen the most depressing movie I had ever seen in my life. And yet...I loved it! In fact, I felt very grown up at having survived it. This would not have been possible without the aid of the movie's soundtrack, Brahm's Piano Concerto No.1, which my astonished ears heard for the first time that evening. I've been in love with that piece--and with Brahms--ever since.


I first saw this movie when I was I'm my early teens and for some reason it everytime stuck with me. Some 30yrs later, I watched it again last night and was awestruck by the performances in this fine fine film.Leslie Caron was nominated for an Oscar for her role and won the Golden World and BAFTA for her performance .. and rightly so. Such a touching, understated delivery that will have you too fall in love with her hero Jane.It's difficult to trust I am only the 2nd player to comment on this forgotten gem. Movies like this really illustrate the dire state of motion picture making these days. They sure don't create em like they used to folks.Available on DVD, unfortunately not in it's original aspect ratio. Perhaps one day someone will release it in wide screen to truly appreciate the gritty black & white photography.Highly suggested .. a flawless movie throughout !
