HALFMOON (Paul Bowles Halbmond) Frieder Schlaich, Irene von Alberti, D 1995, 93 minread more... hide...
Together the three stories capture the essence of Mr. Bowles’s vision of human cruelty as a driving life force indivisible from the harsh equatorial landscapes in which his characters find themselves. (The New York Times, 1996)
Visually arresting, Halfmoon captures the necromancy of Bowles’ prose. Schlaich and von Alberti proceed lovingly, even reverentially, letting the locales and their fine actors transport viewers. Halfmoon journeys to a faraway place, wreathed with dust and heat. (Los Angeles View, 1996)
