Moses und Aron

Danièle Huillet, Jean-Marie Straub West Germany, 1975

João Eça's rating of the film Moses and Aaron

I really don't agree with the comments below. I think that this film is much more about Faith, God and Representation (and therefore about Images, Words and Ideas) than about politics, history or whatever. It's an operatic reflection on Cinema itself, if you want, because the problem of representation that Straub-Huillet examine is an artistic one: in this sense one can compare Art to God (as two forms of creation).
