    Reader comments on Carnage

    Subject: excellent entertwined-storyline melo.
    Date: Dec 31, 2003
    Sender: Harry TuttlePrevious | Next

    Carnages (2002) ****

    half-surrealist half-tragedy and another half or irony. involving a confused lil 5 yold girl, a mall actress, a fighting bull, a dog, and quintuplets. nice existensialism emotions painting.

    Cannes Festival selection Un Certain Regard - Prix Jeunesse. Rugus London film festival - Sutherland Award Stockolm film festival - Best Scenario

    multiple stories develop in parallel in various places, untill the pathes cross and some characters bump into each other, and their lives collide. several people go through a life crisis at different age, and ponder about life and death from their unique point of view. the metaphysical considerations facing pregnancy, cheating, fatherhood, motherhood, loss, abandon, identity take a strange look as these characters realize other people around them might have answers. the movie is all about atmosphere, the collage of all the stories together is clever and the transitions around this bullfight carrion give a very surrealist twist to this quirky fable. it's a succession of moving scenes about people's intimacy, an aspect of their life, unshielded, helpless, naked. the photography is rich and colorful, each scene is fully furbished of very personal objects and a complex emotional background surrounds each character, that tells about their whereabouts. the whole dance throughout each sequence, rythmed by the sweet music and the cynic visual derision move us into this burlesque world that is simultaneously sad and humourous.
