La veduta luminosa

The Luminous View
Fabrizio Ferraro
Italy, Spain 2021
OV w/ EN subtitles

The third part of what could be considered a trilogy on the leitmotiv of walking, THE LUMINOUS VIEW (after LES UNWANTED DE EUROPA and CHECK POINT BERLIN) invites us to wander through the Black Forest with Emmer, an intransigent director who intends to make a film on Friedrich Hölderlin. Practical and optimistic Caterina, the production assistant, could not be more different from her travelling companion. Yet it is precisely from this distance that the spark of an unexpected complicity and almost loving tension will arise. Initially sceptical, she ends up becoming increasingly involved in Emmer’s pained meanderings.
The film progressively plunges us into a suspended zone, a wondrous walk through the forest that confronts Emmer with the untold mysteries of nature. Using an optical device that narrows and blurs our field of vision, Ferraro alternates between sharp and distorted images as his protagonist seeks an ultimate truth, hidden in Hölderlin’s last poetic words, which he tries to decipher by following his footsteps in the forest. Hölderlin inhabits every one of the film’s frames: his spirit is in the rustling of the leaves, in the breaking of the branches under Emmer’s frantic steps, in the protagonist’s endless repetition of the poem, and in his desperate hope for a final epiphany. (Maria Giovanna Vagenas)
