The gorgeous black & white photography aside, I was struck more by the very careful composition of every shot. People just don't know how to leave the camera still like that anymore. Everythng is a continuous shot, now.

Great visual storytelling. Does anyone know where I could get some more info on the cinematogrphy of the film?

Thanks.

I would have thought that American Cinematographer Mag would have covered that film.

I'm sure they did, but their purchasable back-issues go back only so far...

Bill try to get hold of a copy of "Mademoiselle" 1966 . Directed by Tony Richardson , DoP David Watkin , shot in Panavision . The camera never moves , every shot is static and the actors use that scope screen to there thing . It is very soft light B/W .
