The Tempest: Poem on the Sea Regissert av Jean Epstein

Anmeldelser fra kritikere

Epstein’s writings also addressed innovations in sound that he pursued in his filmmaking. In “The Storm Tamer” (“Le Tempestaire,” 1947), a spare melodic line is combined with the noise of wind and waves rerecorded at different speeds. In a beautifully edited scene, a sorcerer blows on a glass globe to calm the ocean and save a young woman’s beloved as she watches, transfixed.

Le Tempestaire (The Storm Tamer) is narrowly focused on a single incident, and it’s a peerless masterpiece of mood. [It and Mor’van] start the same way, with montages of static shots… but in Le Tempestaire there is immediately an ominous sensation of waiting. It’s created not only by the unearthly music (by Yves Baudrier), but by the timing of the close-ups and the way Epstein plays with the speed of the film. People are frozen at first, as if under a spell, while the sea laps outside.
