With "An Angel at My Table," Academy Award-winning filmmaker Jane Campion brings to the screen the harrowing true-life story of Janet Frame, New Zealand's most distinguished author. The film follows Frame along her inspiring journey, from a poverty-stricken childhood to a misdiagnosis of schizophrenia and electroshock therapy to, finally, international literary fame. Beautifully capturing the color and power of the New Zealand landscape, the film earned Campion a sweep of her country's film awards and the Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival
Sweetie by Jane Campion( Visual )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Tolstoy asserted, every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. This unhappy family has never confronted its unhappiness: Sweetie, so called since childhood, the apple of her father Bob's eye and the bane of her mother Flo's smothered existence. Her sister Kay is shy, superstitious, and sexually repressed where Sweetie is loud, slovenly, and quite possibly mentally ill. The family has managed to lead relatively normal lives by denying their bizarre family reality. Sweetie has terrorized her family for years, but an unexpected tragedy is about to loosen her spoiled brat grip on their psyches

Un angelo alla mia tavola( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Realizzato per tre puntate televisive, il film è diviso in tre periodi della vita della scrittrice Janet Frame, considerata ingiustamente, per il suo carattere anticonformista e un po' introverso, pazza. Si parte quindi dall'infanzia per poi passare ai primi romanzi pubblicati, attraverso l'esperienza in una clinica psichiatrica. La regia è anticonformista, in linea con la scrittrice, e al tempo stesso scrupolosa e rigorosa

1 edition published in 1990 in Undetermined and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Lebensgeschichte der neuseeländischen Schriftstellerin Janet Frame. Nach ihrer Autobiografie inszeniert, beschreibt der Film die von Ängsten geprägte Kindheit, die Einweisung in eine Nervenheilanstalt, in der sie fälschlich wegen Schizophrenie behandelt wird, und den Reifeprozeß als Frau und Schriftstellerin, an dessen Ende gesellschaftliche Anerkennung steht. Einfühlsam, in ruhigem Rhythmus inszeniert, entwirft der Film ein authentisches Frauenporträt und erzählt neben seiner universalen Leidensgeschichte die hoffnungsvolle Geschichte einer Befreiung von Ängsten. Bemerkenswert auch durch das Spiel hervorragender Darstellerinnen. (Der Film ist in drei Teile gegliedert: 1. "To the Island", 2. "An Angel at my Table", 3. "The Envoy from Mirror City"; Kinotip der katholischen Filmkritik; (Lex. d. I. Films)
