I've just seen THREE ROOMS IN MANHATTAN and I must confess I am still under the spell of this strange film. Although the story line sounds artificial and a little weird at first glance, every minute of the film is marked by a profound sense of truth. No doubt this is due to the marvelous actors - Girardot and Ronet have done outstanding work here - but Carné must be credited for the moody atmosphere, as well as the sensitive handling of the characters and their personal dramas. Manhattan in the mid-sixties has a palpable feel that is fascinating. The cinematography is excellent, so is the beautiful music score. Both have a haunting, poetic touch. Most importantly, we keep interested in the characters and their destiny to the very end.
