Aria ()

directed by , , , , , , , , ,
featuring Theresa Russell, Nicola Swain, Buck Henry, Jack Kyle, Julie Hagerty, Marianne McLoughlin, Marion Peterson, Tilda Swinton

An international collection of well-known directors contributed to this compilation film, each fashioning a short film inspired by an aria from a famous opera. The approaches vary broadly, from the playful abstraction of Jean-Luc Godard's segment, which illustrates Armide with exercising body-builders, to the more literal approach of Franc Roddam, who transports Tristan und Isolde's story to modern-day Las Vegas. A particular stand-out is Julian Temple's take on Rigoletto, which recasts Verdi as the accompaniment to a contemporary Southern California sex farce. Judd Blaise, Rovi Hide synopsis

Aria is one of the most amazing movies I've seen. Each director is in charge of a different section. The Challenge? No words for the actors; instead, each director had chosen their favorite aria from an opera, and those were the only words on screen. Each "short story" is strong enough to stand by itself, but put together they become a massive piece of reverence to the film as an art form.Like great art, the stories are simple enough to be understood by the least sophisticated (self included) , and yet deep enough to change our view of life. It has been ten years since I last saw this movie, but much of it is still engraved in my heart.
