fantasies of a young girl
14 December 2009 | by (belgium) – See all my reviews

now, what can I tell about end that's a bit decent? nothing at all, but please let me try. it seems like rape on film and that's really ugly, because we generally try to understand the title of what we're seeing, and in this case, the word 'end' could be... a guy's 'end'. but very soon we understand we're watching two women. not only that, we see them do a lot of things together. from the moment we understand 'end' is not about rape at all, that it was an illusion for the eyes, the first images, we can sit this one through without any hard feelings (if I choose my words correctly). from the second act in this short film (if we can talk about acts in a short matter), we realize time, place and the action of the subjects. it's all weird things that follow, so this is my interpretation of the movie: everything we see, is imagination, the part of understanding life through the eyes of an innocent little girl. so yes, some things may seem quite strange, especially if you're younger than 10. the world can be a creepy place to grow up in. this movie is creepy too, but it's definitely art, no question about it. some may recall Jack Smith's use of black images in 'Blonde Cobra', here there are shots that look alike, but, unfortunately, Peleshian's 'End' never reaches the quality of a Jack Smith masterpiece. and what about the ending of 'End'? well, it's perhaps the most obvious thing about it, because it shows us we're witnessing the climax of a girl, fantasizing about things she has yet to learn, and experiences she doesn't have already.
