Glint (IFFR 1996)
Drama balancing on the brink
between portraying an intimate relationship between a man and a woman and
intimacy in the play of actor and actress.
Every scene of the film comprises a dialogue
between a man and a woman. The dialogues are fragmentary, in other words, the
dialogue in one scene does not tie in with that of the next. In addition there
is no development in the relationship between the actor and the actress towards
a happy or unhappy ending. The dialogues are not only of substantial interest;
it is above all material for the actors. The film balances on the boundary
between portraying an intimate relationship between a woman and a man and the
intimacy in the acting between the actor and actress. When an actor or actress
hardly has any words in a scene, he or she portrays loneliness; when he/she has
a monologue, then the attention is focused on speaking the text, on (the
reflection about) being an actor.
