Children / Madonna and Child / Death and Transfiguration

These three early films, subsequently assembled as a single work, tell of the melancholy life and death of the director's alter ego, Robert Tucker, growing up an artist and a homosexual in postwar working-class Liverpool. Bold use of music and an acute visual sense prefigure Davies' later works, with sustained passages of brilliance.


open_quote Sacred and profane and profound, The Terence Davies Trilogy contains one masterpiece that anticipates the great work to come from one of cinema's most overlooked artists. close_quote Matthew De Abaitua, Film4
