Patrick Bokanowski - Courts-Metrages

Rating: 

Average: 3.3 (3 votes)

A work of exploration, to be sure, but one in which beauty and sensitivity, humor and angst find their path, while Patrick Bokanowski reworks these source materials in his own way, as if rebuilding a figure with the pieces of an exploded academic statue.

Contains:

- La Plage (1991)
color 12' (The Beach)
- La Femme qui se poudre (1972)
b/w 18' (A Woman Powdering Herself)
- Dejeuner du matin (1974)
b/w 12' (Morning Lunch)
- Au bord du lac (1993)
color, 6' (By the Lake)

Rarely has cinema been so obsessive, and rarely has such an anguished atmosphere been created in an abstract context, free from any narrative intent." - Vincent Ostria (on La Femme qui se Poudre)

"Relentlessly reworking 'real' images, using techniques borrowed from painting and animated film, Patrick Bokanowski is an author of stature, capable of creating an insane and cataclysmic universe of unquestionable beauty." - Michel Perez (on Déjeuner du Matin)

"Now there are films such as 'La Plage' and 'Au Bord du Lac' which hark back in a more traditional way, that is more closely linked to painting (and always to music, thanks again to Michèle Bokanowsi), to the royal road of experimental film." - Dominique Noguez

"A work of exploration, to be sure, but one in which beauty and sensitivity, humor and angst find their path, while Patrick Bokanowski reworks these source materials in his own way, as if rebuilding a figure with the pieces of an exploded academic statue." -Jean-Michel Frodon
