Anne Of The Indies

Saturday 4 November @ 1.00pm | Arc Cinema| $16/13

1951| CTC | 81 mins| USA | D: Jacques Tourneur

Historical fact and genre expectations go overboard as the female Captain Providence strides and sword-fights her way into the male domain of piracy on the high seas. Jean Peters throws herself into the action but Tourneur characteristically moves the story increasingly into deep shadows and (literally) the dark recesses of the mind to isolate Anne in haunting close-up and to reveal her hidden anguish. Ultimately, in the final third of the film, the lively and colourful fun becomes unsettling and melancholy. In the darkness, Anne emerges as a complex and vulnerable character who is trapped by fate.  The brutality of her piratical acts becomes an expression of her tragic despair.
