Corridor of Mirrors ★★★

British star Eric Portman plays a brooding artist who lives in the past, in a modern version of medieval Venice where he believes he led a former life. Portman meets the girl of his dreams, a look-alike for the Venetian woman in his cherished 15th century painting. He draws her into his life, but falls into despair and death when she rejects him for a modern life.

A fantasy-like film features beautiful sets and costumes. Screenwriter and star Edana Romney provided herself with a role in which the costuming and camera work highlight her best physical feature, her thick black hair.

Seen at the 14th Annual San Francisco Film Noir Festival, January 2016.
