Most movies are locked into a single mood from the first shot but "Household Saints," directed by Nancy Savoca from Francine Prose's novel, moves gracefully from knock-about high spirits to a kind of austere sublimity. It's a difficult movie to get a fix on, but the difficulty is what makes it special. The shifts in tone correspond to its portrayal of three generations of Italian-American women in New York's Little Italy following World War II.

In "China Girl" (selected theaters) Abel Ferrara has another ultraviolent winner, a Romeo and Juliet tale set in Lower East Side Manhattan's cheek-by-jowl Little Italy and Chinatown. Ferrara and writer Nicholas St. John, whose previous pictures are "Driller Killer," "Ms. 45" and "Fear City," can create gritty and exciting Manhattan street fables like no one else, and Ferrara has a way of making violence expressive and therefore acceptable as few other directors can.

The catalogue of the Savoy jazz label, which contains thousands of classic performances, many by Charlie Parker, Dexter Gordon, J. J. Johnson and Miles Davis, has been sold by New York-based S. J. Records to Nippon Columbia of Japan. The recently completed sale marks the first time a U.S. strictly jazz label has been acquired by a Japanese firm. "It all happened very quickly, within a month," said Barney Fields, a spokesman for Muse Records, of which S. J. Records was a subsidiary.
