Non riconciliati, o solo violenza aiuta, dove violenza regna

Nicht Versöhnt oder Es hilft nur Gewalt, wo Gewalt herrscht

Diretto da Jean-Marie Straub
Germania Ovest, 1965


Saltando da un punto all’altro del romanzo di Böll, muovendosi tra l’autocrazia del Kaiser degli anni ‘10 e il miracolo economico di Adenauer degli anni ’50, i registi tracciano le origini e l’eredità del nazismo e le esigenze morali dell’obbedienza e del sacrificio in una famiglia borghese tedesca.

Non riconciliati, o solo violenza aiuta, dove violenza regna Diretto da Jean-Marie Straub
The special achievement of Not Reconciled is its capricious jamming together of three periods of German history. What in any other film might serve to clarify the action—descriptive titles, observable changes in costume and decor, expository voice-over narration—is here almost totally upended. Information comes without the customary gadgetry of narrative filmmaking; the attitude toward time is (always) wonderfully, strangely agnostic.

Only the subtlest of indicators alert viewers to the story’s complex flashbacks… Straub and Huillet bring the layers of history to life in the present tense, which they judge severely. The tamped-down acting and the spare, tense visual rhetoric evoke a moral crisis as well as the response—as much in style as in substance—that it demands.

For all its difficulty and complexity as an integral narrative, Not Reconciled registers more simply and conventionally than Straub’s other works within its individual sequences, and is perhaps his only film to which the usual concept of mise en scène can comfortably be applied.
