Kristen Stewart?How the fuck did you get in this film?

Another oldie. I’m not sure if things were well different back in 1943 but i initially wouldn’t have thought so but this film seems weird for a few reasons.This one portrays women as blithering idiots who seem content with being just another dumb woman.The relationship between uncle Charlie and his niece in the first half of the film seems creepy and unnatural.The score at the beginning is too much,you shouldn’t need a thousand strong string section to create tension where there is none.My ears were almost bleeding.The film just didn’t work for me : I was totally aware I was watching a film.A shit one at that.
