Watch Gravity movie to see a new world. With the world premiere of Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity the 70th Venice Film Festival in a small coup succeeded in their anniversary year. 2012 had provided an overly simple political parable for the acquisition, are once again pioneering, ecstatic images in the foreground.
About the missing child that makes here for tears, but a veil of silence was better placed. Because actually serves the story only as a back story for the existential drama that has Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) experienced in space. Only when you think about it that quickly gets a bitter taste: the woman must survive in order to bring more children into the world.
Take the first half hour of the film, we urge the rest aside, we forget him. When did you even feel the effect only with high financial vortex to unleashing overwhelming powers of the cinema so powerful? Who knows how many hundreds of sources, with as many hundred invisible cuts a twenty-minute, free swirling through low-earth orbit space sequence was fitted to a space-time unit here? But this knowledge does not spin out of the fiction, but flows back into it, as the idea, yes, technical production use, with a simple image beguiling idea was developed here.
The researcher and her colleague Matt Ryan Kowalski (George Clooney) are hurled into space on a space shuttle-like ferry hagelndem of space junk at work. Time the camera stays away, and we see her space suit body turns against the backdrop of stoic calm circling around Earth and the star-speckled astral black. Then the movie eye flies to her and clings to her shoulders, and her wild rotation becomes our visual experience. What was just stable is now in pure movement: no gravity no coordinates.
When thoughts of the universe affects people probably a kind of inverted claustrophobia, a fear of Platzlosigkeit. And if Cuarón illustrated this with almost romantic force, the film is enormous. “Life in space is impossible“, it therefore also emblazoned at the beginning of the canvas in black, accompanied by an electro-orchestral fanfare. Very cleverly the director moves his image has become fascination of the universe and of the exhilarating beautiful mother earth at sunrise to humans. And so solidifies because even gradually to suspect that that is a set equal to the other: Look, what a beautiful planet we come from. Look, what we control everything. Look, it’s us: delicate, sentient creatures, sublime, because they never just give birth, but always create.
Ultimately agrees nothing sadder than that Gravity is longing in his half-hour panic-majestic gravity by the centrifugal forces of consensus. From the pure, but rarely filmed as gracefully mediated primal fear, the dusty and creepy old familiar certainties of life peel. Gravity has won.
