Back home, see Paris

  Mike Figgis, a moviemaker whose
  works I've admired, is seen re-
  marking in a Criterion supple-
  ment to the first Browning Ver-
  sion (1951), of which he made
  the second (1994), that Ratti-
  gan's story has to do with "a
  man who has somehow fallen out
  of time with himself." This a-
  perçu has the merit of applic-
  ability to whole truckloads of
  post-War theatre and cinema,
  but has also a way of touch-
  ing upon the custom of return-
  ing home for the holidays, and
  how suddenly one's in Paris.
