"Persona (1966)" Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

When I first saw this film in 16 years, I have largely met that I'd always wanted to see in the cinema. Simple in terms of supply of monologues, which, although not devoid of monotony, but the overall dynamic and they do not have too much information. Simple film is that it is devoid of noise, but it is sufficiently random to be focused only on the accident. He simply and action in the film a couple of signifiers and one aspiration characters for two. And yes, I will not discuss the film, linking it with the personal biography of the director, even though I do not deny the possibility. And in the filmography is clearly seen as a Bergman film set himself questions and others answered them. A coincidence in the film at all should be considered solely on the basis of personal biography of the director.
The story begins with a kind of theater actress, who turns around and then be silent. Needless to recall wrap at the mention of the myth of Orpheus, who failed promise not to turn around, losing the last opportunity to return to his beloved. But I mention it no more than a figurative character content. Later in the story introduced a nurse who and become a beacon for the audience, because on the basis of actions sisters Alma and will develop their relationship as the patient and the doctor. And in general, there could be dispensed with definitions of psychoanalysis, the benefit of them is enough to make out about a clinical case in a movie. And for this reason, there are more than actual statements about cloying or notorious film, because there is almost nothing except the clinic. And movies that are devoid of fillers and structure of the narrative, and in this case psychoanalysis makes them, whether that common.
For me it's about the challenge to prove that the stories without relying on some lore or story can be interesting. Especially if you cut all the supporting roles, and put the rest in a linear corridor. Such films is sufficient, but the movies that involve at least as a spectator a little. Here and linearity, clarity and dialogue - everything is there, even though the dialogue juicy nature difficult to discuss. Yes, and those introduced as a way to show some genuine desire or the mood of the character, in this case, something like Alma loneliness. There is even a voiceover, which is considered to be a bit clumsy way somehow to give a smooth film. And usually directors, playing in the puzzle, flirt for forgetting about their goals, and this film, while not trying to become a cult classic, but talks about the basics.
makes sense to chew transient action person, which there are only three. First, I announced at the beginning with the wrapping as an act of non-compliance problems, and subsequent silence and laughter as an attempt to escape. Next sister Alma takes a liking to the visible character, the second support part, is striving Alma and gives her his letter. This is a prerequisite as the top monologues and subsequent wanderings of both. Here I can only add to what is noteworthy that there is no emphasis on anything. One day I am going to the room, which was locked, and the unknown, given that it is your want, is unlikely to be a problem get in the same room but with the door ajar. But this is nothing more than talk about the simplicity of the film and in the absence of non-working scenes. It was only on the third there is a focus. Last monologue is repeated twice, and he says the same character. This is essentially what you strive for the heroine. But before the voice to which we must mention the film comes highly symbolic theme in the film - repetition. By itself, the idea of ​​repetition is considered to be unreasonable, for what has been said and repeated does not make sense in the development of personality and is a degradation. On the other hand, we reiterate the fact that trying to digest, perhaps exactly the same as the character. Repeating something from time to time, it's like having a baby, the possibility of striving for the new. And he watching movies is a repetition of the same, the imposition of its projection on the characters in the film.
I can bad all sounded, but the film is not very different than that of the adjacent, except that the film is not so much about the characters and the viewer as about the movie. The film as a whole is very similar to what the audience when it comes to the movies, he collects himself of some observed characteristics, and the same characters in the movie are engaged. In addition, everything that happens in this movie is very versatile, there is not to say that all of the observed in the film belongs only to women or men. A simultaneous arcade and authorship allows at least an interest in their personal matters and perhaps even the author.
little about the mood. The film itself is a terrible person not so much mystical themes as accidents that occur in the film, especially the periodic flashing director memories. Another fear is caused by me personally for close-ups. Speaking briefly about the definition and purpose of close-ups in the movie, they need to enhance the drama. Close-up in person rather made to destroy it, and then reality. I'm talking about the fact that the film is nameshivanie time, and this is due not so much to the assembly, as the construction of the film in terms of dynamics.
Why come. The film is not just bold gave a clue what is happening is more like a dialogue with himself, and in this process, the aim was to achieve integrity. But on the screen, we see how one person can get along with any two different characteristics and to respond to what they came hard. Final in this sense, an open, on the one hand a person decomposed into two components and from this we must have the release, on the other hand a person can comfortably in a state of silence, where it was much better. It is neither a plus nor a minus, it is a feature of these films that we argue about the basics, but to something concrete to come unprepared. And besides, where it is said that the film has something to say? Yet the film of non-compliance as a whole.
