35 shots of rum

A poem speaks to us with words and the words convey images and feelings. The moving image is a poem already. In the clip below, from 35 Rhum, Denis achieves a lot without words. What we see is a poem in the eyes and the poetry of the body. Dance opens chains and ties a few more. The ethno-urban tone of the setting is clear. The movie is an adaptation of Ozu's Late Spring. What you see below is a poem. Words are quite un-necessary subsequently.
