A Time To Love And A Time To Die

A Time To Love And A Time To Die
£10.49  

Douglas Sirk the master of the Hollywood melodrama turns back to his native Germany at the time of the Second World War for the film that would stand as his penultimate American feature: A Time to Love and a Time to Die. A CinemaScope production staged on a grand scale, Sirks picture nevertheless pulsates with an intimacy that has known longing for too long, and seethes with the repression of emotions poised to explode like bombs. John Gavin plays Ernst Grber, a soldier on the Russian-German Front in 1944 venturing home to Hamburg on a rare furlough. Upon arrival, he discovers a city that bears little resemblance to the one he left behind and so, through the rubble of the air-raids, he searches desperately for fragments of his familys shattered lives. But amid the shards, he falls in love with Elisabeth (Liselotte Pulver), the charming daughter of his parents doctor, and thus activates a magnetism that compels both individuals toward one another in love, even as it hurtles them headlong into epochal death. Adapted from the novel by Erich Maria Remarque (the author of All Quiet on the Western Front, who also makes a cameo appearance in Sirks picture), A Time to Love and a Time to Die takes its literary source and sculpts it anew out of matter made from colour, decor, and performance and arguably bests the novel on all aesthetic levels. And yet perhaps nothing can better summarise the power of Sirks film or of his entire body of work than these words from the movies trailer: Their pounding hearts drowned out the sound of chaos thundering around them. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Douglas Sirks 1958 masterpiece for the first time on home video in the UK.
