Marcel Hanoun – Le printemps (1971)

One could only enumerate the elements to let the film tell itself. And this is besides one possible purpose of Hanoun here. Just let things communicate between themselves without the coercition of usual continuums (space and time) and let’s see and feel what happens. Yet there are clues given, relations but they are separated when one could await a close editing and vice versa. There seems to have two worlds, cinematographic worlds I mean : B&W and colour and things circulate from one world to another, people too…

But let’s just enumerate

Here, maybe more than in his other films, Hanoun appears to be a filmmaker of questions when cinema is usually, almost all of the time, an affirmation and questioning only to answer to its own questions, Le printemps unties the strain of often hammered affirmations to give us air and make an open field of questions and freedom. And frankly it feels good, very good.
