Valentine's Day Weekend: Films for Romantics

 

See other films in this series at the Aero Theatre!

 

It's that time of the year again-- the time when we're reminded of all the bliss, ecstasy, contentment (and, yes, humiliation and misery) that goes arm-in-arm with romance. And what better way to celebrate this roller coaster of a holiday than to go to the movies and see the powers of romance beautifully and cathartically magnified on the big screen? Join us on Valentine's weekend for films that celebrate amour in its many forms.

 

 

Saturday, February 13 - 7:30 PM

Double Feature: WINGS OF DESIRE, 1987, Janus Films, 127 min. Wim Wenders’ most fully-realized cinematic vision follows Damiel (Bruno Ganz), an angel having pangs of longing as he observes the lives of mere mortals in Berlin, specifically the beautiful, ethereal trapeze artist, Marion (Solveig Dommartin). Peter Falk essentially plays himself, a philosophical film and TV star (often addressed as "Columbo" by other characters!), who is making a movie in Germany and is one of the few people who can sense the presence of the invisible celestial spirits. An achingly beautiful and poetic meditation on life and what it means to be a human being. WINGS OF DESIRE won the 1987 Best Director award at Cannes. In German with English subtitles.

EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, 1990, 20th Century Fox, 105 min. Director Tim Burton’s wondrous modern fairy tale – his most heartbreaking and inventive film – stars Johnny Depp as the boy with sharp blades where his fingers should be, courtesy of inventor father Vincent Price (in his final film role). Winona Ryder, Dianne Wiest and Alan Arkin are the suburbanites who fall under Edward’s spell in this utterly original Burton creation.

Double Feature: CASABLANCA, 1942, Warner Bros., 102 min. Dir. Michael Curtiz. One of the few classic perennials loved as well today as it was upon its initial release. Tough guy Humphrey Bogart is Rick, an expatriate club owner in Morocco, nursing a broken heart after his sweetheart (Ingrid Bergman) disappeared from his side in Paris during the Nazi occupation. When she re-enters his life with her fugitive, resistance leader husband (Paul Henreid), sparks fly. With an incredible cast that includes Claude Rains, Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet and Conrad Veidt. Winner of three Oscars for Best Picture, Director and Screenplay.

DOUBLE INDEMNITY, 1944, Universal, 107 min. Dir. Billy Wilder. Wilder’s cunning masterpiece helped to spawn Hollywood’s dark era of mordant murder thrillers and is one of the greatest noirs ever made. Fred MacMurray plays Walter Neff, the sardonic insurance salesman who is willingly seduced by slinky Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck) into planning and executing the murder of her newly insured husband. Edward G. Robinson is Keyes, Neff’s sharp colleague and gruff friend, who smells a rat when Phyllis’ hubby has a fatal train "accident," qualifying the femme fatale for the lucrative double-indemnity payout.
