Moses und Aron

Danièle Huillet, Jean-Marie Straub West Germany, 1975

dionysus67's rating of the film Moses and Aaron

Ascribing contemporary relevance to the opera on the issue of faith in the (utopian) Unrepresentable and in the emancipatory Exodus, Huillet/Straub shoot in austere settings mainly in static takes and slow pans of considerable duration. The stylized acting confirms that the opposition with Aaron is doubled within Moses and action in the unconventional sense is limited to emblematic epiphanies (e.g. the golden calf).
