VISUALLY REWARDING, BUT VERY ESTRANGING
13 May 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

In every article on this film it is pointed out that a hand driven 1927 camera was used for shooting; by this director Maugg wanted to create real authenticity. I wonder wether the use of film material and developments techniques are not also of influence. Besides, the story starts in 1936, when different film techniques were used; so, which authenticity was Maugg aiming at?

During shooting different speeds (ips) were used as seen appropriate for the atmosphere of the story; the screened image is speeded up, slowed down or halted. Documentary film material of the time was used to complete the atmosphere and the mixing of this with the narrative material is superbly done, as is the editing in general. The result is beautiful, visually rewarding and poetic b&w cinematography, that is at the same time too estranging to get really involved with the story as told by the voice-over. The technical achievement is too prominent. However, certainly worth a concentrated look.
