Cage, La

1983, 20:00 minutes, B&W, colour, French


Initially, La Cage seems to be divided into two parts. First, a homosexual writer visualizes his fantasies. Second, a group of people join what seemed to be the story of an encounter between two men. Thus, by the incrustations which recur periodically and a camera emphasizing everyday objects, a shift occurs in the first part of the story. Because the words we listen to are not related to the images on the screen, we are then plunged into a magical atmosphere where there is no longer a story, except for the one between the two men.

La cage semble au départ se diviser en deux parties. D'abord, un écrivain homosexuel visualise ses fantasmes. Puis, un collectif se joint à ce qui paraissait être l'histoire d'une rencontre entre deux hommes. Ainsi, par les incrustations qui reviennent périodiquement et une caméra insistant sur des objets quotidiens, la première histoire se déplace. Nous sommes plongés dans une atmosphère magique où il n'y a plus d'histoire, sauf celle des hommes entre eux.
