King Vidor United States, 1949

bernardovazdecastro's rating of the film Beyond the Forest

Bette Davis is always so dramatic, almost unbearable in every movie. You notice that Vidor had many problems controlling her, until the magnificent ending when Davis give up all the tricks with eyes or hair and forcing that she need to be the center of the movie. When she gave up, she became the center. Is magnificent modern adaption of Bovary and Vidor made it superbly.
