Dirt Noze, le 18 octobre 2007

Avec "Home Stories", Matthias Müller nous propose un collage d’extraits tirés du cinéma hollywoodien des années 1950 et 1960. Un travail rythmé sur la mémoire collective, les clichés et notre rapport avec ce média de masse qu’est le cinéma.

"A collage of Hollywood melodramas of the 1950s and 1960s, filmed directly from the television set. The constantly recurring motifs of suspense and clichés of plot make it possible to move seamlessly among scenes from different films with different protagonists : uneasy sleep, getting up, listening at the door, turning on the lights, being startled, etc.

In the montage, the movements and gestures of the actresses – stars like Lana Turner, Tippi Hedren, and Grace Kelly– seem choreographed and planned for each other. The sound track (Dirk Schäfer) supports this effect with connecting passages of sound that imitate the stereotypes of the genre. The treatment concentrates the dramatic shift from the familiar to the eerie and shows how women become the victims of the voyeuristic glance of film."
