20 FRIDAY JUNE 11 1993 it fr THE DAILY TELEGRAPH THE ARTS FILMS Hugo Davenport on a mistaken remake the return of an Oscar-winner Liv directorial debut and a cop drama set in a Jewish community A gem that vanished without trace Consolations of religion may have been an inside job Meanwhile the emotional force of the film rests in the hopeless mutual longing between Emily and deepthinking Ariel (Eric Thai) heir to the Hasidic rebbe who prefaces almost every remark with a quotation from the cabbala His sister Leah (Mia Sara) has a similar litany: we were a desert tribe There is an irritating tendency to suffuse every scene of Hasidic tradition with a reverent golden glow Sometimes the film becomes virtually an exercise in things you know about Hasidic they have for example 613 different rules to keep and the men wear those sideburn-ringlets because a forgotten tribe of desert idolaters are supposed to have shaved the sides of their heads And sometimes not least thanks to the music of Jerry Playing the heavy: Jeff Bridges with Nancy Travis in a Hollywood remake with all the cliches of a modern psycho-chiller The Vanishing (15 Odeons Leicester Sq High St Kensington Swiss Cottage UCI Whiteleys 110 mins) Untamed Heart (15 MGMs Oxford St Trocadero Fulham Rd 102 mins) DUTCH director George Sluizer was granted a rare privilege when Hollywood decided to remake his thriller Spoor-loos released in Britain three years ago as The Vanishing He was hired for the American version too so there was reason to hope that his mesmeric portrayal of the calculating madness hidden within the mind of a nondescript family man might come through intact Fat chance A brilliant idea originally executed with a quiet authority that made its horror all the more insidious has indeed vanished buried alive beneath the cliches of the modem Hollywood psycho-chiller The remake has a plot heavy with contrivance a villain exhibiting obvious signs of dementia a resourceful nay heroine a swampy Grand Guignol climax taking its cue from Cape Fear and worst a happy ending signalled by an apologetic joke What American retread shows is not so much the banality of evil as the curse of banality Scriptwriter Todd Graff supplies the ironic explanation: Sluizer felt that what is really frightening about the story is that you are somewhere that is so totally normal and then this tenable thing happens I actually agreed with him but I also thought who wants to see a whole movie in a completely normal banal Sluizer was right It was this very ordinariness that made the story and its nightmarish pay-off seep from the realm of dismissable fantasy into the security of real life Graff however elects to show the couple first on the ravaged slopes of Mount St Helens so we know from the outset that they are on the road to disaster Welcome then to the banality of the bizarre What happens is after all an experience frighteningly common in these days of large mobile populations: the inexplicable disappearance of an individual Here a touring couple Jeff (Kiefer Sutherland) and Diane (Sandra Bullock) run out of petrol in a long mountain tunnel he heads off to find fuel leaving her scared and alone in the car Safely reunited they stop at a service station and she makes him swear never to leave her again Then she IS II OPERA AND BALLET COLISEUM 071 836 3161 CC 071 240 5258 CC

Screen on the Hill 109 mins) CTRESS Liv Ullmann who as a performer has often shone in slow sensitive period pieces makes her debut as a writer-director with Sofie Not altogether surprisingly it is a slow sensitive period piece Spanning two decades the film begins in Copenhagen in 1886 It centres on a woman from an affectionate but stifling Jewish family who is compelled to give up the gentile artist who has stirred her passions in favour of marriage to a weak-minded cousin Karen-Lise Mynster plays the eponymous Sofie with a great glow of inner conviction while veteran actors Er-land Josephson and Ghita Norby as her mutually besotted parents supply a gentler effulgence The film pays loving attention both to the minute details of everyday intimacy and to the Jew-ish milieu with its religious rituals and its family gatherings Silences are often protracted as Ullmann seeks emotional resonance in the nuances of gesture and facial expression No obvious effort has been made to inject a contemporary relevance into the piece Yet its reflections on the limitations placed upon the lives of children by even the most loving and well-intentioned of parents are far from antique echoes The theme is played out through emotional upheavals as she experiences the force of a grand passion destined to frustration finds a more limited happiness in motherhood and finally when her son grows up sees him reject fthe bonds which have held her own life in check Jewish culture specifically the customs and beliefs of the Hasidic Jews are treated in still more eulogistic fashion in Sidney Close to Eden In this case however the heroine an independent-minded female detective investigating a murder and jewel robbery within the enclosed community of New York's Hasidim finds herself unaccountably attracted by the restrictions placed on the lives of women The film is structured very like Witness with the investigation providing narrative drive as detective Emily Eden (Melanie Griffith) puts forward the unwelcome proposition that the crime VICTORIA PALACE Box Off CC (No bkg fee) 071 834 1317 CC (bkg fee) 071 344 4444240 7200 Groups 071 930 6123 BUDDY The Buddy Holly Story Sun BUDDY

opening in which a small boy with a bad heart is regaled by a kindly nun at an orphanage with tales of his daring explorer father and the mythical baboon king the film settles into a predictably plotted but often touching romance Caroline (Tomei) the waitress has had a run of bad luck with men she consoles herself by larking around with her tougher friend Cindy (Rosie Perez) When Caroline is threatened with rape one night she is rescued by kitchen-hand Adam (Christian Slater) the little boy of the opening now grown into a young man so withdrawn that his colleagues regard him as hopelessly backward He turns out to be a sort of angel and Caroline falls head over heels in love with him Such beatitude can only be shortlived but Slater at least gets to show that there is more to his talent than playing teenage misfits Swing Kids (12 1 14 mins) SURPRISINGLY sharp-edged for a Disney picture Thomas film is based on the true story of a group of teenagers in pre-war Hamburg who expressed their opposition to Hitler by following the music deemed degenerate by the Nazis Robert Sean Leonard Christian Bale and Frank Whaley play the rebellious trio whose contrasting destinies unfold the drama of moral choice Kenneth Branagh makes an uncredited appearance as a Gestapo officer (see Diary opposite) It blends wild dance numbers with reflections on politics which have once more become topical The film might easily have turned out as Saturday Night Fukrer but it is better than that an original well-acted thought-provoking slant on history which should captivate any intelligent youngster Army of Darkness The Medieval Dead (15 89 mins) WATCHING this harmless horror-spoof from writer-director Sam Raimi it seems inconceivable that the first film in the series The Evil Dead should once have been on the list of Bruce Campbell plays the chainsaw-and-shotgun-toting hero projected back in time to circa AD 1 300 At first the wisecracks and effects are rather fun By the time

disconcerting flashes of Fiddler on the Roof Unfortunately the devotion lavished on cultural detail does not extend either to plotting or dialogue both of which reach a pitch of pure fatuity What are we to make of the pantomime Italian greaseballs who march into a Jewish jewellery emporium to demand protection money straight across the counter? Or of the description of Ariel as being Jewish scholarship what Mozart is to Griffith and Thai give it their best shot also sturdy counterpoint from Ja-mey Sheridan as a fellow cop who would like to share gas bill and from John Pankow None of them unfortunately can make a silk purse from this non-kosher ear IS ODEON HAYMARKET AccessVisa Bookings (071) 839 7697 24hr information 0426 915353 (local

Jeff begins an obsessive hunt which wrecks his life until a strong-minded waitress Rita (Nancy Travis) takes him in hand The new relationship is threatened by continuing secret preoccupation until abductor Barney (Jeff Bridges) approaches Jeff three years on and offers to show him exactly what happened Part of the trouble is that instead of building up a picture of the kidnapper by fragmentary flashbacks the remake starts with a long sequence laying out meticulous preparations for snatching his random victim and so kisses goodbye to any subtler forms of suspense freakish demeanour a leer a
