The Long Day Closes

1992 Directed by Terence Davies. Starring Marjorie Yates, Leigh McCormack.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Fri., Oct. 15, 1993

This sequel to Davies's deeply personal Distant Voices, Still Lives shows us life in the mid-Fifties Liverpool through an 11-year-old's eyes. Reported to be more expressionistic than the previous film, this new work aims at being a poetic collection of memory fragments.
