Finis terrae Regissert av Jean Epstein

Anmeldelser fra kritikere

In the late 1920s, Epstein began an extraordinary series of films in Brittany, mostly working with nonactors. The first was the starkly poetic “End of the World” (“Finis Terrae,” 1929), a simple story about men who burn seaweed on a desolate island for part of the year, living amid wind, smoke and fog.

The opening of the film is pure Epstein: the otherworldly atmosphere evoked by hypnotic images of rocks, waves, and smoke; the dreamy languor of movement created by slight over-cranking; the jump-cuts to close-ups of faces and objects that are at once astonishingly tactile and suffused with intense but ambiguous feeling; the enigmatic sequence of images that creates less a visual narrative than a visual poem—or puzzle.
