Description

Barry Lyndon (1975) is an award-winning period film by Stanley Kubrick based on the novel The Luck of Barry Lyndon (1844) by William Makepeace Thackeray. It recounts the exploits of an unscrupulous 18th century Irish adventurer (Barry Lyndon né Redmond Barry), particularly his rise and fall within English society.

In the film one can recognize the nostalgia, that it is not so much the downfall of the aristocratic world that is being mourned. When Bryan dies, Barry, realizing that his life has turned into a fiasco, loses his zest for living once and for all. By then the images, already having anticipated this moment for some considerable time, to the sound of Schubert's piano trio, set the tone for a melancholy lamentation on time elapsing and the loss of innocence and vitality. Corrupted by life, Barry has definitively forfeited his chances for a possible return toward a state of innocent happiness.
