Rarely is the montage of sound and images so beautiful
23 February 2005 | by molloy10000See all my reviews

What harmony in some of the sequences between the musical accompaniment and the images! It is Romanticism of the highest order.

The hero paces the landscape with a formidable energy, a rhythmic personage of increasing and decreasing size, powered forward by the germinal forces of the Earth. The trees and the flowers breathe through him, and his sadness is discharged with a rainfall.

He is founding a new social order. The young pupils are prompted to think for themselves, and Lan(whom the hero loves), to oppose her spirit to the written volumes (in a Protestant fashion).

Playing the piano propels the hero (and the heroine) along a line of sonorous abolition. The torments of class injustice, and of all the hard realities come to crumble in flow of quanta where sound governs universes of synesthesia.
