This movie is almost any interpretation can be drawn from the images shown. Perhaps every single scene is random and unconcerned with any other, although the director certainly seems to have included items which are present throughout the film. In some ways the repeated glimpses of these things in situations where they shouldn’t be adds to the confused feel, enhanced by the disgusting and nonsensical time-markers deployed.
A movie like this is a tonic and surrealism type. It assaults old and unconscious habits of movie going. It is disturbing, frustrating, maddening. It seems without purpose.
The eternal life themes of life, death, lust and love are thrown up at various points, this is of no consequences though the directors has already hurried onto the next sequence, violently cutting so that the desired woman becomes naked in a flash. A picture of what is ardent suitor really sees. This movie does not require such deep analysis though, being much more a film which should be purely experienced. It achieves that which the directors aimed for.
French new waves films had a casual and natural look due to the location filming. The available light was preffered to studio style lightning and available sound was preffered to expensive studio dubbing. French new wave films had a free editing style and did not confront to the editing rules of Hollywood films. The editing often drew attention to itself by being discontinuous, reminding the audience that they are watching films.
French new wave cinema was a personal cinema. The films were writers who should skilful at examining relationships and telling humane stories.
The nouvelle vague film-makers, being critics, their films incorporated elements of American genres. They also frequently contained reference to particular Hollywood stars or films by American auteurs. It is already starting to become assimilated into a mainstream cinema. The directors meanwhile diverged in style and developed their own distinct cinematic voices.
I think Film noir is a Hollywood crime drama, particularly those that emphasize cynical attitudes and sexual motivations and associated with a low key black and white visual style that has a root in German Expressionist cinematography. I think that film noir is a genre, style and movement.
Film noir has given this name because of how the acts locations, people on the screen are seen, it is usually dark and black. And film noir has a common themes corruption, deceit, mystery. And as I read about “film noir” is portrayal of the “femme fatal” therefore, it would seem to support the existing social order and particularly its rigidly defined gender roles.
Film noir would seem to have a large following, from melodramas to westerns, detective movies and even musical. The uncommon use of light, shadow and cinematography would have a very artistic appeal.
In our Cinema subject we’ve watched a Film entitled “Romeo and Juliet” this movie is really good. I say that the movie has excellent and convincing actors in it. I think this movie and of course the actors/actresses portrayed their characters really were able to act them out convincingly as if they were really the characters in the play.
Especially when Juliet is begging to the enrage capulet about her arranged marriage, the actors and actresses performance shows the audience that the character is truly miserable not just by the language used, but also by her actions and emotions.
i iked this movie because every actors/actresses and their character in this film are so powerful and consistent.
This film is the hilarious but quite serious development of a friendship as they proceed, seemingly, inevitability towards self-destruction. Mark alone has the insight and opportunity to escape his fate, but then again does he really want to choose life. When we first met him, instead of life chosen a sincere and truthful junk habit and a bunch of friends who inhabit a world all of their own, this movie is a mix of Surrealism and Realism that allowing us to gasps the ecstasy of the high along with all the junkie most endure to get it there’s a lot of humour in this movie.
Even though some of the scenes might be hard to watch, you several good laughts both from dialogue and pictures. The Surreal moments where is it trying to capture the addicts state of mind, many hold some appeal and serve as convincing pro-heroin propaganda for the most impressionable viewer but as a whole, the movie doesn’t smooth overall of the rough edges. Because he is going on and off in drugs,We witness the relationship with family and friends and what do they affect it.

Impressionism and Surrealism is when the end of First World War 1 and the French film industry was in ruins, completely lost its former leader. In France found critics and directors they are firmly intending to restore the reputation of national cinema.
Few had considered too traditional, even the views of the delluc. Sometimes they simply consist of unrelated expressive frames, they were a series of abstract shapes, drawn or etched directly on film. Surrealist sough to blow up the everyday reality without help of the strange,disturbing images of consciousness. By contrast has used elements of surrealism to entertain the audiences in every scene.
Also the French impressionism Cinema is also known as the first Avant –Garde, they have a trauma because of the world war therefore they reduced the country to a struggling minor part in film history. It is influenced such as psychological nature, editing were more long-lived. While Surrealism is overly anti-narrative attacking causality itself that’s why many surrealist films tease us to find a narrative logic that is absent.
Impressionism and Surrealism are different.
This movie is all about a 1938 Dutch suspense film directed by Paul Vehhoeven, this movie it was like an artry version of basic instinct without the guilty pleasure, they had a lots of style and symbolism with the little black humor towards the end that one might find it silly, its wild, European version of what Brian De Palma could have done the days woke up brilliant, with a big dose hitch cock the style of sex and violence and gorgeous cinematography. It’s a steamy and graphic both sexually and economical relationship with her. But soon he noticed that something is wrong, she’s been married three times and all her husband’s has been killed in an accidents, we didn’t know if its coincidence or she is a murderer or a witch.
Well, I love every second film of this movie because it’s so original, intelligent and open-minded. Every graphic, almost humoristic, death scenes but what I like in the most is the films that the mysterious woman shoots with her camera, Films of her three husbands , up to their every death and in graphic detail.
