Storyline

Portrait of an artist as a young manic. First, a montage of still photographs of an artist's face. Then motion. He stirs in sleep; he paints and expresses frustration. He looks for a light for his cigarette. He sketches, wads it up; makes tea; stares at his face in a mirror, then looks at canvas after canvas of self-portraits. He becomes agitated and defaces the work. He rips and tears, punches and kicks the art. Then he destroys mirrors. The catharsis over, he rests and begins again to paint.

The Face
30 December 2011 | by (Portland OR) – See all my reviews

Made in the same year as THE TRAM, starring Kieslowski and by someone who I presume was a classmate.

An artist suddenly goes bananas and trashes all his self-portraits and mirrors.

It looks slicker than The Tram but reeks much more of "student film" with its avant-garde soundtrack and deliberately enigmatic action.

The kind of thing that makes you go, "Yes, yes, I get it already."

Recommended only as a curiosity.

Available on the Criterion release of the Three Colors trilogy.

The Face - 4/10
