The humming of the parts

Recently Jean-Luc Godard gave the Western Swiss television, one of his rare Interviews. In the end, as the Journalist still had some questions, but the half-hour conversation was already over, to put her Godard in his kitchen and said: "When they built here, their cameras, I thought: It could be a small Film turn, would be called "colonization."" So it is with Jean-Luc Godard is, at the end, he always aims to the political question of the production of Images.

the 88-year-old co-founder of the Nouvelle Vague will polymerize with his latest Film "Le livre d'image" first of all, our living room colonial. Probably there will be a few complaints, if Arte is broadcasting the movie tomorrow at midnight. What is wrong with the picture? It is warped or poorly resolved, and over-modulated contrast and exaggerated colors. Format tremors, pixel noise, the sound of hisses and forth. But it needs to be. Also, with regard to the comment that Godard for the first time, German spoken, while the music track aufjault often abruptly. In the pre-release version is employed, therefore, to pry the volume control.

The burning hope

If Godard meant when he says in the Film, we would have to learn to think with the hands? Of course, it goes him to the Assembly as a Form of reflection; "Le livre d'image" collaged shards of film history – from Max Ophüls to Nicholas Ray, but also many of Godard's own films – with the IS propaganda videos, paintings, excerpts from novels and texts by Elias Canetti, or Edward said, to the sense strands cross each other: Irritation by Association.

The quote with the hands comes from the Swiss philosopher Denis de Rouge ment; Godard refers to it in the Policy: Where the policy is only because she has banished the Thinking in a separate sphere, it threatens to become totalitarian. Since the "picture book", as the Film prose is called in English is, to a Glossary of war and destruction. You romp in the cinema as in reality, and the polyphonic murmur is to angry action against oppression. It is the "burning hope" to the rescue. The feeling is so pungent, that the sentence in Godard's cough.

Since Jean-Luc Godard is definitely entered its experimental Phase, to inform him of the juries in Cannes, each Time special prices, because you have no idea what to do otherwise with this image explosions. A dense Assembly work such as "Le livre d'image" will be the planes, but so little justice as an analysis of the openness to uniqueness. It's like the Brecht quote that uses Godard: Only the Fragment bears the stamp of authenticity. All the Rest is a Remake of the Godard shows both in looking back on his own filmography, as by means of its recycling process. And the sad diagnosis that the cycle of destruction seems to repeat forever. Perhaps you will say, in this Film, the amount of work put. Up to now, you recognize individual parts.

The most magnificent of these is the Chapter "La région centrale". It is Godard's trip to the Arab region and its cinema, where the conquest was also caused by the pictures, which has made the West from Islam. The act of representation as a Form of colonization: The in Godard's kitchen. And at the same time, there is something else, a calm Inside the images, which can be. Godard, in the great dialectical child, always sees both the outbreak and whispers. Delusion and silence.

So this is a rhythmic, such as intimate experience: Godard's seems to be weakening the voice of us to whisper in the ear. His anger about the disturbing inclinations of the people to the violence retains a little Tender. And how he makes the images jump and Thinking in all directions is flooded, as you might have to Swim, but the space of images is open again.
