Heaven only knows about Douglas Sirk

Anything heaven allows. USA, 1955 (84 minutes). Director: Douglas Sirk. Cast: Jane Wyman, Rock Hudson.

In the second half of the 1950s, Douglas Sirk's films reached heights of melodrama such as Written on the Wind, Angels Without Luster and A Time to Love, a Time to Die. In “Only Heaven Knows,” Sirk paints a dark portrait of the American bourgeoisie and explores its double standards through the romance between an aristocratic widow and a fellow countryman. Sirk combines bitter social criticism with the dense note of extreme melodrama and shows his courage to sacralize the most passionate love stories.
