  1. El Mau's rating of the film L'arrivée

    Lo mejor, es que solo dura 2 minutos...

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film L'arrivée

    Un écran blanc. Puis les pourtours de la pellicule s'animent, s'affolent. On devine un train qui entre en gare. Catherine Deneuve en descend, Omar Sharif se jette dans ses bras ..... Etonnant ! www.cinefiches.com

  3. Benjamin Dogan's rating of the film L'arrivée

    Interesting and enigmatic. What should be a joyful moment is marred by rather irritating interferences and an irritating soundtrack.

  4. Christin Trommer's rating of the film L'arrivée

  5. innersmiff's rating of the film L'arrivée

    Tscherkassky is so obsessed with cinema that the only original thing he can think of doing with it is meddle, fiddle and screw around with the footage of other movies. This way we can look at the film from a suitable detached perspective. We’re looking at the art itself. This one is only 2 minutes long and depicts the most cinematic of all events: a woman getting off a train.

  6. weinbrandbabsi's rating of the film L'arrivée

    The least violent (in it's relation to the spectator) of Tscherkassky I've seen so far. And - how much these two are connected I'm yet to find out - my least favourite. Seems more like a study into experimental films (I had to think of Burroughs Cut-Ups for a minute) then the emotional cacaphony his other words inflicted on me.

  7. Hans Rudolf's rating of the film L'arrivée

    Stilistisch und formal gelungene Hommage an den Beginn der Filmgeschichte (Gebrüder Lumère 1895). Aesthetisch schöne, flirrende und irritierende Bildelemente unterbrechen immer wieder die Handlung: Bahnhofszene aus längst vergangener Zeit ... Zugsankunft ... Dame steigt aus ... Umarmung ... Ende des Films. Ich musste den Film ein paar Mal sehen und fand ihn sehr schön !

  8. Dimpfelmoser66's rating of the film L'arrivée

    People did heaps of stuff like that in the 50s and 60s, and back then it was relevant, controversial, funny, fresh and important, but 1998 it's just lame. Also, the Mubi versions seems to be interlaced, or is that intentional. On second thoughts, it doesn't matter really. What I would like instead of a short 3 minute snippet here and there would be a short film reel of experimental movies from the 50s/60s.

  9. Terry_Moby's rating of the film L'arrivée

    Beautiful. Too short, though.

  10. Marco Bevilacqua's rating of the film L'arrivée

    A very quick short film. It has a strong visual impact and an original film negative experimentation. A film made by a modern artist more than a filmmaker.

  11. Theories Of Anxiety's rating of the film L'arrivée

    Lumière brothers are dead, train doesn't crush an audience in a theater, people can reach their destinations.

  12. Quattro's rating of the film L'arrivée

    Interesting but nothing more, in my humble opinion.

  13. Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film L'arrivée

    A perfect antithetic experiment-response to the Lumière's testimony. Where before a train came to the camera, here the cameraless screen crashes and burns into itself, a pure portrait of reality turned into an anti-reality. After the structural pulverization, it closes with the final touch of purpose:the arrival of the woman establishes everything a filmic document does not entail: intention, manipulation, narrative.

  14. Hockley Cinema's rating of the film L'arrivée

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh..... 'the enigma of arrival', to freely pilfer from Naipaul. Quite a visual collision and well worth 3 minutes of your life, pending your state of approach.

  15. Lu_na's rating of the film L'arrivée

  16. JD Tastad's rating of the film L'arrivée

    i'm just not sure that this kind of experiment would be saying much by 1998 or whatever.

  17. Pakbro's rating of the film L'arrivée

  18. Kamran's rating of the film L'arrivée

    A lamentation of a lost medium, whose physical nature and ability to tarnish but not die is testament to its resilience and immortality. Always alive, becoming, emerging, arriving anew. 82/100 - Great.

  19. JaredMercer's rating of the film L'arrivée

  20. Brendan Whelton's rating of the film L'arrivée

    Interesting little idea. No idea if I get it, though.

  21. wenseslao's rating of the film L'arrivée

    Una interesante propuesta. Me cautivó la estética del film. La yuxtaposición de los planos el blanco, la toma y el negativo hacen una gama fabulosa.

  22. deAnta_'s rating of the film L'arrivée

    Es fascinante la caradura que tiene la gente. Sólo por eso, dos estrellas.

  23. marinos@agxivatein.com's rating of the film L'arrivée

    I've been always fond of Tscherkassky's work; this particular one is more of a thematic study or something like a 'young's person guide' to his idiosyncratic cinema: a cinema that foregrounds its very own language-the very materials that produce it in terms of film, editing, post-processing,etc)-which, nevertheless, does not avoid narration altogether-as this case soundly exemplifies.
