Description: A movie of improvisations - not only from the part of the nine amateur actors, but from the D.O.P, the director and the scriptwriters as well. The storyline unfolded itself immediately by the reactions and concepts of actors during the 20 days of shooting and developed into what is presented to the audience. But the storyline perhaps is less necessary than the globe which opens up in front of us, a taste of Budapest in January 2008. Written by György Pálfi

Let's face it, Proust's monumental "A la Recherche du Temps Perdu" is probably unfilmable. The Chilean director Raoul Ruiz had a commendable shot at adapting the final volume "Time Regained" in 1999 that achieved a certain measure of critical acclaim in spite of being rather diffuse with not all the characters clearly presented. ( I think you have to know the novel well to totally appreciate it). A rather more satisfying attempt appeared fifteen years before with Volker Schlondorff's "Swann in Love". By concentrating more modestly on what is really a vignette, a novella tucked within the vast structure, Schlondorf achieved a work with a true sense of cinematic concentration. There is no Marcel, whose unlimited reminiscences are something of a kiss of death to movie narrative and no confusingly vast set of characters to receive to grips with. There is simply Swann, the boy about town, his obsessive pursuit of the whore, Odette, and the characters he bumps into during the course of a short zone of time and a brief epilogue some years later. It is a very gratis adaptation. I cannot remember the Baron de Charlus appearing much at this early scene of the novel, but, as he is one of Proust's most fascinating creations, his presence is welcome, even if John Malkovich in the soon ver is better cast than Alain Delon. What strikes most forcibly is Schlondorff's unflinching look at a thoroughly decadent and degenerate society. In studying only the rich he paints a portrait of the lengths they are prepared to go to satisfy hedonistic pleasure and, in the situation of Swann, lust. In an amazingly frank stage he sodomises a prostitute but is obviously more interested in obtaining notification about Odette from her than in what he is doing. Sven Nykvist's camera glides through salons stuffed with rich objects and people: this is a globe where the terrible simply do not exist. All around however are flunkies whose sole purpose in life is to serve their masters uncomplainingly. Just occasionally a look, such as the coachman Remi's, when he is ordered by Swann to drive him half the night in his pursuit of Odette, tells it all.
Terrific costuming and production design, most noteworthy is the luminous camera-work of Sven Nykvist (Bergman/Allen/Tarkovsky and others). The movie is paced as languidly as narrative movie making will permit, allowing a certain quality of the author's voice to be felt beneath the demands of "storytelling", one of the chief obstacles in adapting this material.I think that a masterstroke in this movie is the music. While it may seem inconsequential, it draws the movie into a more complex direction than typical period melody would have done. I trust that this allows the movie to reinvent the quality of emotional zone in the material.Contemporary composers of modern chamber melody like Hans Werner Henze (who'd collaborated with Schlondorff before) were brought into the making of the film. The melody succeeds by injecting an atonal, dissonant, aching, atmosphere into the story. The piano and violin pieces work well vs typical form and aid the narrative in a superbly contemplative manner. I was reminded somewhat of "L'Année dernière à Marienbad", simply because the musical "cues" were not spelled out in easy terms.Avoiding kitsch is part of the trouble when adapting an creator who discusses topics (in epic detail) which have been filmed a thousand times before - in my opinion, the melody permits yet other interpretation of that subject. At first its quietly unusual, becoming a defined, twisting voice, accenting the growing dissonance Swann experiences with Odette and ultimately with society.It is a pretty film. My only concerns were the occasionally odd voice-over work, which was a tiny distracting. Ornella Muti is a knockout, but her beauty seems oddly contemporary - its as if the filmmakers were trying to create the statement that voluptuousness is eternal, while beauty standards shift periodically and culturally. Irons is perfect as Swann. I would highly suggest the film.
I enjoyed this movie very much. I don't know how the movie works as a literary adaptation but, judging it purely as a movie on its own terms, it works well as a study in sexual obsession and jealousy. Irons is perfectly cast as the fixated aristocrat but the post-dubbing, whilst seamlessly executed, is a tiny off-putting as it clearly isn't Irons' own voice (despite what some IMDb posters seem to believe). Irons expertly portrays Swann's social aloofness and the method in which his obsession takes over his sense of reasoning. The movie is exquisite to look at (as you would expect from a movie with Nykvist as the cinematographer) and Delon gives a scene-stealing performance as Swann's camp greatest friend. Worth watching.
