Robert Altman, UK 1972, 104’
That Cold Day in the Park 3 Women

In an excellent dissection of insanity, when Cathryn grows hysterical about haunting delusions, her businessman husband seeks a remedy in a mountain cabin from her childhood. There, her condition only deteriorates: surrounded by harassing men, she ceases to distinguish between reality and hallucination.

Robert Altman

Distinguished director, screenwriter and producer Robert Altman was born in 1925 and died in 2006 having made several dozen cinema and television films. The breakthrough in his career came with the anti-war satire  MASH, in which he presented a community in typical Altman style that characterises his very best work – based on episodic narration and innovative montage of image and sound. Altman often uses irony to show how society’s traditional roles, social conventions and cultural myths condition people.
