Eyes Do Not Want to Close at All Times, or, Perhaps One Day Rome Will Allow Herself to Choose in Her Turn

Les yeux ne veulent pas en tout temps se fermer, ou Peut-être qu'un jour Rome se permettra de choisir à son tour

Västtyskland, Italien, 1970
Drama

Synopsis

En trogen bearbetning av Pierre Corneilles klassiska tragedi Othon, som utspelar sig bland ruiner i det samtida Rom. Med pjäsen, undersöker filmen processen med vilken händelser blir kulturellt mainstream samt processen med vilken deras användning som del i ett kommunikationssystem blir till kultur.

Eyes Do Not Want to Close at All Times, or, Perhaps One Day Rome Will Allow Herself to Choose in Her Turn Regisserad av Danièle Huillet, Jean-Marie Straub

Kritiker-recensioner

It unearths a complex archeology of contradictions. Rather than isolating individual layers of history and narrative, it invites the viewer to experience the tension between past and present, between fiction and reality. Othon is demanding, but thought and reflection shouldn’t detract from our appreciation of the film. The “clique of power” that Straub-Huillet challenge governs not only the structures of power but also the aesthetic standards through which we judge art as valuable or not.
