Time Regained

Directed by Raúl Rui

An extraordinary conflation of avant-garde art film and de luxe literary period drama, this ambitious assault on Proust’s fifteenth volume in Remembrance of Things Past constitutes a peculiar triumph.” Time OutA starry cast makes up the haut society that exiled Chilean director Ruiz depicts, with its binding social conventions and relations. In its midst is Marcel who remembers his loves and affairs – the dazzling Gilberte, her beautiful mother, the composer Morel… These reminiscences lead to bold Proustian leaps, handled with cinematic flair by the practiced avant-garde director.
