47 Minutes


Sweet Surrender

I Meant To

If I Knew Why

I like these. I find it very striking that while Christie emphasizes romantic themes, she hardly ever shows anyone's face. She tries to convey emotion and even story by the relative positions of bodies, and subtle shifts in their angles. Sometimes it works, and I feel certain that I know something of the stories behind the spare scenes.
