The Film You Are About To See

Le film que vous allez voir

26th TIDF: Greek Premiere

“Please note that the film you are about to see is taken from real material of film history, namely the disclaimers and warnings that frame the existence of many films. However, any collusion between art and industry, any conflict of interest between freedom of creation and the law, or any hint of moralism on the life of images, would be purely incidental and unintentional.” Rather than being saddened by the legal straightjacket in which the merchants, like the puritans, have wanted to confine cinema, The Film You are About to See invites us to delight in this unbroken power. Among the mass of collected warnings, nothing says it better than the unexpected presence of two significantly more poetic intertitles from Robert Bresson’s films: the film “that you are about to see” is never the same as those you have already seen.
