Sample text

We do not know how she 21 Pietro Roberto Goisis reacted to her mother’s death – she herself does not remember anything about it. She chose to follow her profession, first as a director of documentaries, then in films as assistant director. She certainly did not forget her own history and her own loss, but one might say that she learned to live with her loss, using the typical defence mechanisms available to children and later to adults. Here are her own words from the interview which appeared on Cine@forum:2 I wasn’t able to mention her, nor to think of the fact that she had decided to end it all the way she did.

Every shot of Jean-Luc up until this accusation fully corroborates Isa’s fury: he treats his patients with undisguised disdain, as (largely unsuccessful) experiments. His brother Patrick is only good enough to chauffeur him from party to party or else ‘only stand and wait’, a condition against which Patrick, like Isa, revolts – in his case by wrecking their expensive car and walking off into the night. Jean-Luc’s associate and mistress, Myriem (Amira Casar), exists only as a puppet whom he can undress on demand and move about like a chess piece when it suits him.

It is a magic that is renewed in this film each time I see it and I believe it is metaphorically represented by the choice of the shots in which her great-uncle does conjuring tricks. Firstly, the images are a kind of journey through the twentieth century, if only for the existence itself of the pictures and for the way they proceed from black and white to colour. They are a frame, as Elena Rossi writes on Erewhon,4 which becomes almost indispensable in order to understand, situate and narrate the whole story.
