Avis des critiques

It’s almost impossible to see the film without thinking, at least briefly, of the Lumière brothers’ L’arrivée d’un train en gare de La Ciotat (1895), particularly in the way that Loznitsa substitutes movement for, as the title suggests, a kind of stasis, a moment frozen in time. The shots are closer to still photographs, with only hints of motion throughout—a fidgeting hand or the rise and fall of a child’s stomach.

Rarely has a film about slumber been so transfixing: Sergei Loznitsa’s Polustanok(The Train Station/The Halt, 2000) observes passengers in various states of nocturnal repose within a station, their narcoleptic state uninterrupted by the intermittent whistles of trains passing in the night, the luminescent black-and-white photography serving to enhance the oneiric spell induced in the viewer.

The Train Stop (2000), his first solo short, takes place entirely inside a railway station’s waiting room, opening with abstract visuals and the cacophonous hiss of a steam engine before establishing its rhythm, which comes from dreamily shot images of people sleeping on benches, their breathing and snoring competing in tranquil discord with buzzing flies, creaky floors, and far-off winds. In Landscape (2003), Loznitsa creates a continually moving panorama.
