sketch scenery, frozen and misty atmosphere, more influential than any Hollywood film, close ups of bodies make a good link with long shots of landscape, from witch it reflects descent of a relationship as trees droppings, the rupture as the crackle of trees and as absurd as reflection of ax smashes trees
Esperaba mucho menos de esta peli, el trabajo de fotografía, tiene sus "menguancias", sin embargo, creo que sirve para cubrir muy bien las intensiones del script, al final esperaba otra clásica tragedia europea (ME FACINA EL CINE EUROPEO, pero a veces son demasiado Macbeth, if you know what I mean), honestamente me gustó que no lo dramatizarán tanto con muertes innecesarias. Las actuaciones PERFECTAS a lo necesario.
There is something of value here, the idea that the human condition is as volatile as the elements that compose the atmospheric space, as if the human was the instability of a(n )(im)material condition, an atmosphere of sensations, rather than a psychologist banality . But again, Grandieux works to overload and overwhelm, diminishing its potential interest.
Grandrieux is arguably the greatest avant-garde artist making films today. In many ways, Un lac is confessional, its body-essentialism is different than what we see in a Catherine Breillat film, anachronistic in the tradition of avant-garde, and the incessant camera movement (hand held) as opposed to the exponents of time-image films lends this film a kind of uneasiness, like a mad beast trapped in a cage.
