Moses and Aaron

Moses und Aron

Vest-Tyskland, Østerrike, 1975
Musikal, Historie


Moses and Aaron forvandler Schoenbergs opera om den kjente bibelfortellingen til en nærmest surrealistisk filmatisk opera med uendelige muligheter. Med uttrykkende toner diskuterer paret om Guds virkelige budskap og hans mening med sine skapninger, en konflikt som fører til kaos og synd.

Moses and Aaron Regissert av Danièle Huillet, Jean-Marie Straub
This conflict between having ideas and communicating them could be the crux of Straub-Huillet’s entire body of work, which uses literary, political, and philosophical texts as its bedrock, makes Moses and Aaron one of the most crucial films in understanding the filmmakers’ oblique oeuvre.

All the more powerful for their brevity and unexpectedness, these small additions draw attention to the central conflict with which Schoenberg was grappling . . . Unresolved tensions abound in their work, gradually extending into a great array of diverse and contrasting accents, colors, shadow and light, and costumes. This is what is radical in Straub and Huillet’s cinema and why their films are so rejuvenating, why they make us see anew.

[The directors’] rarefied aesthetic coheres perfectly with the opera to come off as a kind of 12-tone filmmaking which, like Schoenberg’s music, reclaims a classical ideal for a progressive cause that owes nothing to nostalgia. Oblique angles, long takes, and static tableaux allow Straub and Huillet to go straight to the drama inherent in the story and the composition. The stark images are as passionate and engaging, profound and beautiful as the complex music to which they insightfully respond.
