Flick Review < Nymphlight | Joseph Cornell and Rudy Burckhardt (1957)

Nymphlight (1957) 
Directed by Joseph Cornell, Rudy Burckhardt

In this work, a young girl in a white diaphanous gown, carrying a broken parasol, steals into the park on a sunny day, passing the fountain and disturbing the pigeons. The young girl was Gwen Thomas, daughter of an artist friend, and she looks like a young Grace Kelly when filmed in profile, gazing at the pigeons perched in the tree branches. Burckhardt’s influence in the work is seen in the scenes of workaday New Yorkers taking a respite on the park benches.
