Not Reconciled, Or Only Violence Helps Where Violence Rules

Nicht Versöhnt oder Es hilft nur Gewalt, wo Gewalt herrscht

Diarahkan oleh Jean-Marie Straub
Jerman Barat, 1965


Pengarah merekod asal usul dan kesan kerajaan Nazi di Jerman, serta kepatuhan dan pengorbanan yang dibuat oleh rakyat jelata pada zaman antara pemerintahan autokrasi Kaiser di tahun 1910an sehingga pemulihan ekonomi di bawah pimpinan Adenauer di tahun 1950an seperti yang dicatat dalam novel Böll.

Not Reconciled, Or Only Violence Helps Where Violence Rules Diarahkan oleh 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.
