Reviews of the Cavalcade

A sloppy but beautiful British family saga chronicling the lives of two families, the Marryots and the Bridges, the former upper class and the latter their servants, from the end of the 19th Century up to 1933. A few major events are portrayed. At the beginning of the film, the patriarchs of the two families go off to fight the Boer War. Much later on in the film we experience WWI, and in between we see the Titanic sink. The film is filled to the brink with good characters, all of them being portrayed by very good actors, as well. There are a few very bad scenes, most notably the one on the Titanic (I know it was an important event in this time period, but it's handled very poorly and predictably in the screenplay). The final speech, a necessary element in every film of this sub-genre, is particularly bad, too. The film ends during a worldwide depression, and there is a half-attempt to provide the audience with hope. Unfortunately, there is none to be found. I would have hated to be an audience member at this film in 1933! The many good scenes do far outweigh the bad ones, though. There are a couple that are really masterful. The very long montage that paints a portrait of WWI is gorgeously done, and appropriately harrowing. The scene in which the matriarch of the Marryot family watches her youngest son go off to war is exquisite. After he leaves, she attempts to light a cigarette. At that moment, a young nurse and a wounded man in a stretcher pass by; the nurse lights a cigarette for the wounded man. The match goes out between the matriarch's fingers as she stares at them. This very economical scene expresses both the cold fear she has for her son and the ways in which the boundaries between the classes were fading. The theme of class in Cavalcade is important, although I wish it had been developed further. Early in the film, the Bridges family moves away and amasses something of a fortune of their own. As history marches on, we do see the class lines falter a bit. Cavalcade may actually have been an influence on none other than Jean Renoir, at least in The Grand Illusion. That film also deals with the melding of the classes as a result of wars. There is one scene in Cavalcade that is simply too close to one in The Grand Illusion to be a coincidence. A theater show is interrupted to announce that the Boer War is over and that the troops are coming back. Together, the audience members stand up and begin singing. It looks very much like the scene where the P.O.W.s sing "The Marseilles" in The Grand Illusion. 8/10.
