Time Lost and Time Remembered
It can't have been box-office considerations that motivated the title-change of the British I Was Happy Here to the American-release title Time Lost and Time Remembered. Director Desmond Davis both directed and wrote this nostalgic story of a London housewife (Sarah Miles), who leaves her husband to take a sentimental journey to her Irish home town. As she strolls around her old stamping grounds, Miles occasionally confides her mixed emotions (disillusionment among them) to the audience. To represent the "one foot in the then, one in the now" ambience of the story, director Davies frequently stages his scenes in time-displacement fashion, with characters in the present stepping directly into the past. Can this delicately handled film be a product of the same Desmond Davis who so badly botched the slapstick setpieces of Smashing Time? ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
