Storyline

WE SEE a kaleidoscope of real and subliminal images. Swans in a pond. A float in a communion parade. A young man punching his reflection in a mirror. A man falls from a window. Swans again. Snow falls on evergreens. An aerial shot of New Jersey's industrial parks like a family of Giacommetti sculptures standing in the snow belching smoke. Peace. Violence. Juxtaposing beautiful images with an undercurrent of rage and uncontrolled excitement, LE MIS POPOTE explores situations, events and feelings that suggest the conflicts inherent in mankind's chaotic life and the world. Mental images, childhood memories and emotions are revealed as dreams or nightmares. the soundtrack and Bramsen's original poetry synthetically generated as voice-over, work to construct a sense of honesty in the subconscious. creating an unorthodox visual atmosphere, the filmmaker uses inventive editing, giving the film edge and nerve. LE MIS POPOTE is frantic, plot-less and extraordinary. The images show new and old ... Written by Victor Eremita

" life is a multifaceted concept...'
21 October 2006 | by barak-kemenySee all my reviews

"Le mis popote" is a cinematic masterpiece. Bramsen's innovative techniques; including layering,written statements, alinear narration and true life stories are the tools used to portray the world.

The physchological and social analysis of self and our surroundings is illustrated within the work: " life is a multifaceted concept...". Humiliation, loneliness, love and violence are themes evoked by the work. An Aristelian approach can be detected upon viewing the work. Strong emotions are evoked. Ideas and thoughts repressed by the unconscious are accompanied by affective emotional response and relief.

I love his choices in the use of images, sound, editing and atypical voice over. The narration is not meant to guide the viewer along but rather to support the work with engaging scenarios and concepts. Having said that, the robotic female voice of the narration is packed with pain and sincerity. The juxtaposition of voice over and images strikes an emotional chord within me.

This work has inspired me to pursue video art as a profession.
