Very original, but not that much more
I saw this movie at the Berlin Film Festival and did not know nothing about it before. There will be people that will call this a “masterpiece” or “pure art”, and there will be a lot more people that will call this “bullshit”. I wouldn’t argue with neither of them. If you want to enjoy this movie, you will have to buy every idea the director came up with, otherwise you will want to leave the cinema. At every moment of the movie, the picture is split up into lots of little pictures, often showing the same scene from different camera angles. This can be exhausting at times, but it can also be very exciting.
You suddenly realize that you as a member of the audience are part of the film-making process. You are the one to edit to movie, to decide whether you want the see the long or the close shot. I found this a very interesting approach to the process of making a movie. But still, sometimes the film seems to be so random, trying hard to be special and smart. You might have to watch it a second time to really check if there’s is a kind of inner logic to every scene. The movie has great moments and is full of original ideas, though sometimes it is only original for the purpose of being original and nothing else. Apart from the interesting picture language, I have to mention the gorgeous Ellen Page, who is – ultimately – THE most talented young actress there is today. I’m looking forward to her future projects.
Splitting into fragments..
Recently saw this film on net. Story is a simple one liner. A teenage girl suffering with anxiety, depression dwells in deeply into her imaginary dream world creating her own characters inside and living with them and her younger brother. The end twist is a bit awkward..but looks like no other go to make it to end.
The movie is an odd visual effort playing with the screen slices. i.e. Almost 95% of the scenes have split screens on the screen. The title itself says about Tracey’s ‘fragments’. Mostly different angles of the same scene are played on the split screens. The pattern of the splits is like one half is the main scene and the other half of the screen will be split into sub squares. The film was shot in 14 days and was edited for nine months. You’ll know why when you watch the film. In my view the effort was overdone to some extent that disturbed the movie’s concentration.
But at two specific scenes(her-interview-with-doctor and the-final-run) and some minor scenes, I could see the real use of such images. The final scene in fact simulated the exact shocking mental mind-images of the girl in panic and the meaning they derive by the (male)images. This type of video-editing, in my view, is ‘convenient’ to the eyes at certain combinations. Naturally our mind is set to concentrate primarily on the bigger image among a collection of images…and if minute details related to the bigger image run in the smaller images our ‘eyes’ could follow them. All other combinations would ‘distract’ the viewer’s viewing patience. This distraction happens at many places throughout the movie.
About the acting, photography and music; They all good and watchable. The girl who is the center of the movie did really good in her part. And other supporting casts too. It is not scary or thrilling or pulling the edge of the seat suspense. Just a psychological view. But surely you’ll get something out of it.
I liked this film for some of its aspects. If you are not allergic to video-edit kind of split screen viewing for a long time then you may even enjoy it.
