A sublime and passionate melodrama from the golden age of Hollywood!
New HD restoration
New York, 1934. Eben Adams, a penniless painter, meets a strange little girl named Jennie Appleton in Central Park. He who used to paint landscapes or still lifes will sketch the sketch of this child, arousing the curiosity of art dealers. At each of their reunions, Jennie ages visibly, until she is transformed into a beautiful and young lady. Both intrigued and fascinated by this woman who seems to come from another time, Eben will try to unravel the mystery of the one who has become his muse...
Directed by William Dieterle ( Quasimodo ), The Picture of Jennie belongs to Hollywood's golden age of dreamlike romances, whose staging alternately ethereal – the shots of Central Park under the snow – and baroque – the storm scene filmed in Technicolor – makes it a model of the genre. The couple Jennifer Jones and Joseph Cotten sparks in this new production by David O. Selznick, shot two years after Duel au soleil . A moving timeless love story to contemplate for the first time in its restored High Definition version!
