Barbara Ulrich in DIALOGUE D'OMBRES

Straub/Huillet: Shorts against being slow in the uptake!

DIALOGUE D'OMBRES

MACHORKA-MUFF

UN CONTE DE MICHEL DE MONTAIGNE

Böll, Bernanos, Montaigne. Merely three examples. Three pages lying spread-eagled, not blank any more. Three names, turning yellow outward if they stay surface. The duo Straub/Huillet breaks the autumn of illusion and cognition into pieces. The dust of fallen foliage gets raised up to new visions. The three shorts do not only fetch the food for thought out of the book case, but write a whole chapter of revolution. A shortfilm triplet as plea for rescheduling the visible! (bk)
