June 2015: Films

When Father was Away on Business: Emir Kusturica (1985)

Lovely. Lovely.
Sleepwalking boy. Debauchery of father. Communism. The wife.
The first time the boy sleepwalks and is seen on a bridge. Mother we follow with track shot and then in a two shot we see the boy walking into her open arms, sleepwalking still.
Use of music. All diegetic. How the boy runs to the mother and tries to protect her when the father beats her up.
The love affair. How he sleepwalks into the girl's bed and sleeps there. The girl.
His cuts. The connected images from two scenes.
