Anne of the Indies
SUNDAY 7 FEBRUARY
Anne of the Indies, Jacques Tourneur, 1951.
English with subtitles in Spanish, 78 min.
Jean Peters, Louis Jourdan and Debra Paget. Here the bitterness in the shadow of Queen Christina, the bitterness often entailed in remaining true to oneself in a man’s man’s man’s world, comes to light, where an outwardly happy sexual encounter will transform the rough pirate known as Captain Providence into a woman. And she will pay a high price for it. A few questions: Who invented the typical girl? How can you endure a betrayal without betraying oneself? What is love capable of, not the love of a man or a woman, but the love of a pirate?
Jacques Tourneur, 1951
