#096: Written On The Wind

criterion96DOUGLAS SIRK

1956

I have a lot of movie memories associated with my mom, but my favourite was the time I showed her Douglas Sirk’s melodramatic classic and it triggered her own memories of childhood.  Whatever my mother thought of the patriarchal society of post-war Greece that dictated her choices in life, she always remembers the films her father took her to with great affection, and this is one that burned into her mind with such strength that she could recite the opening scene without having to even see the screen.
