Adaptations

Oferta MUBI

Since its inception, cinema has dialogued with, incorporated, and even cannibalized other art forms—pre-existing texts—and the immense question of adaption has long been a foundation of film art. To explore this vast, challenging basis of storytelling, we offer this eclectic on-going series, which ranges from spry reinventions of Shakespeare on the streets of Buenos Aires to a freewheeling Portuguese adaptation of timeless Middle Eastern folk tales.

On the birthday of one of Hollywood’s greatest—directors, screenwriters, voices—John Huston, we share his final feature. Never afraid to transform literature into vivid cinema—he took on Hammett, Melville, Kipling, O’Connor, Crane—this is an achingly felt, richly observed adaptation of James Joyce.

Jacques Rivette Francja, 2007

wygasł 5 dni temu
Adaptations

After taking Balzac in radically new directions with 1971’s conspiracy epic Out 1, Jacques Rivette returned to the author for this silken, haunting tale of romantic obsession. On the surface: a costume drama; underneath: the dark shadows of doomed love. With Jeanne Balibar and Guillaume Depardieu.

Joss Whedon Stany Zjednoczone, 2012

wygasł 18 dni temu
Adaptations

Amidst filming the The Avengers, television auteur Joss Whedon took a break and pivoted to this low-budget and ingeniously faithful Shakespeare adaptation. Shot in a mere 11 days with close-knit theater collaborators, Much Ado About Nothing is luminous in timeless Shakespearean charm and insight.

Kryjówka bialego weza

Ken Russell Wielka Brytania, 1988

wygasł 30 dni temu
Adaptations

Iconoclast Ken Russell transfers Bram Stoker’s final work to modern Scotland and ups the delirium in this delightfully smutty adaptation. Hugh Grant stars as the vampire hunter tasked with the titular coven, offsetting hijinks of camp, sleaze, and an endless array of phallic symbols. Splendid.

Anatahan

Josef von Sternberg Japonia, 1953

Wygasłe
Adaptations

Realized from a first person account of being marooned on the Japanese island of Anatahan after WWII, Josef von Sternberg controversially recreated the disputed events with his baroque, magnetic touch. Whether truth or fiction, Anatahan offers a potent look at social power structures in microcosm.

Tasma

Richard Linklater Stany Zjednoczone, 2001

Wygasłe
Adaptations

To reimagine a stage play as cinema, inventive American auteur Richard Linklater turned to shooting on video for its dynamic, tactile possibilities. The result is the fittingly titled Tape: an electric showdown between truth, memory, and the male ego inside the single locale of a hotel room.

Kosmos

Andrzej Żuławski Francja, 2015

Wygasłe
Adaptations

Next in our series devoted to ingenious adaptations is the final film by the ferocious Polish auteur Andrzej Żuławski. He transforms an almost unfilmable book by his fellow countryman Witold Gombrowicz into a clamoring melodrama of tremendous verve and surprise. Read our interview with Żuławski.

Tysiac i jedna noc - cz.3, Oczarowany

Miguel Gomes Portugalia, 2015

Wygasłe
Adaptations

Who would have thought austerity measures could trigger such an epic tale of tales? Gomes explores Portugal’s fractures with unmatched originality, sharpness and love—both to his country and to the act (and art) of storytelling. This is the last volume, but we certainly wish it would go on forever.

Tysiac i jedna noc - cz.2, Opuszczony

Miguel Gomes Portugalia, 2015

Wygasłe
Adaptations

The second installment of Miguel Gomes’ magnum opus is arguably the most melancholic of the three. While the whole trilogy is a unique blend of fine irony, dark humor, blissful fantasy, and fervent commitment to the present, this middle section confirms Arabian Nights as the ultimate political film.
