30 hand picked films. A new one every day
Une visite au Louvre is a companion film to Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet’s Cézanne from a decade earlier.
S–H impose their filmmaking aesthetic on a few paintings in the Louvre. Knowing essentially nothing about that art form, I cannot say whether their interpretations translate well from film to painting, but they seem confident in their approach.
Courageous format, technically grating ( photos are flash stained, voice is not the nicest) which needlessly prevents the film from being more accessible. A recommend still.
Courbet, Courbet, Courbet...
je suis cézanne
A film of perspicacious critique of the works of great artists. A great insight.
The miracle is there, water changed into wine, the world changed into painting.
