51st Directors’ Fortnight May 15-25, 2019

Bastien, Bastienne

Fortnight 1979, Feature film, 1h46

Synopsis

That an opera be the articulation of a film, its text. And that which this text says, the sotuations, the settings, the characters, be the music. Buried in a narration, the opera tells of the soul. On the other hand, the narration clarifies the opera on that which it is. Under the grace of the music, the seduction of comedy, cruel truths question us. Guilt and aggression tie together, better than desire, the relationaships between men and women. In the vicinity of pleasure, Death strolls as if at home. Michel ANDRIEU
