      I have watched the movie ‘Total eclipse’. The director is Agnieszka Holland. The actors are Leonardo DiCaprio, David and Romane. This is not so interesting to watch and has been shot rather poorly. David has played the role of Paul verlaine and Leonardo has played the role of Arthur.

      It so happens that Paul meets Arthur’s sister in Paris. Verlaine and Arthur were friends and both of them were poets. Arthur is dead


      and Arthur’s family thinks that Verlaine has some of the copies of Arthur’s poems. But surprisingly, they wish to burn the copies. There is a reason for it. Arthur’s poems are said to be too sensual. Therefore, the reason to discard them.

      Verlaine remembers the past. Arthur was an old friend of Verlaine. Arthur was introduced into verlaine’s family and the two became staunch friends. Arthur was a very wild character and his ...


      • poems were equally wild. His wild behaviour often shocked the family members of Verlaine’s household.

        The friendship that arose between Arthur and Verlaine is very wild, difficult even to describe. Unfortunately, this friendship does not go on healthy terms and once it so happens that Verlaine shoots and wounds Arthur. Thus, Verlaine is sent to prison on the charge of attempted murder. After his release from prison, he meets Arthur again, but

        the friendship is dead, never to be revived again. Does Verlaine hands over the copies of Arthur’s poetry to be burnt forms the rest of the movie.

        I did not like this movie much. There is not much of interest in this movie. It is rather dry. The scenes are also rather boring to watch and I could not see any good message in the movie. I will rate this movie 3 out of 10 points.
