Recenzje krytyków

[The milieu of the statues Marker presents] is a conduit through which to connect to an animistic, archaic, Arcadian ancestral memory, a place where “all of creation moves in formation”. It proposes an anti-transcendentalism, a non-static, anti-essentialism that speaks of a chaotic world of inseparable becomings and inter-connectedness where “the broadest activity connects with the world as a whole”.

Masks, both of fertility and death, are the main motif (one skinny, elongated visage is regarded with a vertical pan, another is bulbous and floats towards the lenses), but their eyes appear dead — the narrator (Jean Négroni) draws a direct line between the museum and the bazaar, yet the place is more like a cemetery, a site of images robbed of their meaning, “objets morts,” phantoms.

[The film] gradually turns into a remarkable duet between Marker’s literary fervor and a detailed as well as despairing political vision — a combination of speculative art history, precise journalism, and a grim meditation on the various places and functions Africa and its separate cultures have assumed within white civilization — and Resnais’s musically and rhythmically orchestrated illustration of and counterpoint to this extraordinary text.
