So much of what I’ve enjoyed and been non-plussed by in film over the last two years suddenly has a context, all names withheld for parity’s sake. I’m not sure there’s a better way into Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire Op. 21 than this bit of One Night. One Life directed by Oliver Herrmann – made in 1999. 1999, I’m telling you *coff* *ahem*
Pierrot Lunaire here.
