Watch The Bride - Alternative Versions.
"The Bride" is more Thomas Hardy than Mary Shelley, and more Gothic
romance than horror. Director Franc Roddam points out (on his DVD
commentary) that he wanted to make a very different version of the old
story by eliminating almost all elements of horror; so only the first
ten minutes qualify as authentic horror.
Roddam does not discuss the illogic of making a film devoid of the very
elements its "target audience" was interested in seeing, but we already
know that "The Bride" had a very poor showing at the box office. This
target audience disconnect was most likely the cause. Nor does he
comment on the failure to market the film to another audience segment;
those interested in Gothic period pieces.
It is especially cool that 20 years later the film is finally being
discovered by this other audience and they are finding it a beautifully
photographed example of their genre that emphasizes story-line and
atmosphere over blood and gore.
Even the much criticized casting of inexperienced leads Jennifer Beals
and Sting (although both look great in period costume) takes on a
different dimension when the film is re-classified into the Gothic
genre. Suddenly you see that it was the director who was responsible
for the apparent lack of chemistry between the two stars, particularly
Beals lack of passion in the scenes they share. Roddam wanted these
performances from his actors to advance his story; they are not not a
reflection of inexperience or talent limitation. Which is not to say
that Sting will ever be mistaken for a great acting talent but Beals
has been unjustly criticized for a shallow performance when she simply
gave Roddam what he wanted from her character Eva. Eva is only learning
how to feel as the film progresses and when the events have all played
out you realize that her emotionless attitude was meant to convey the
indifference she felt toward her creator.
I highly recommend this movie as Roddam is an excellent stylistic
director and has made a very good and very original Gothic romance. The
fantastic production design unifies what are two stories as Roddam cuts
back and forth between the Baron (Sting) teaching his creation Eva
(Beals) while David Rappaport as Rinaldo teaches his other creation
Victor, played by Clancy Brown. There is a psychic link between the two
creations which will result in a interesting plot twist.
Roddam has created a visually gorgeous film that has held up much
better than the 1980's mainstream features that outperformed it at the
box office. Don't be scared away by the negative comments, if you know
what to expect (gothic romance not horror) almost any fan of films will
enjoy "The Bride". I recommend the DVD, it was made from a flawless
print and the widescreen presentation really showcases both the
top-notch photography and the terrific work of the production designer.
