Audience Reviews for Taris, roi de l'eau (Jean Taris, Swimming Champion)

An outstanding achievement of its time, this beautiful yet simple portrait of a Swimming Champion is believed to be the first ever film to use underwater photography. It's both stylish and charming and is a great reminder of a bygone age of productive film making. I love it!

At only 9 minutes in length, its the shortest of Jean Vigo's four works and yet he applies as many, if not more filming techniques here in this short time. Some of the best are his reversing diving shots and underwater slow motion captures. Vigo's skill is apparently and takes something as ordinary as an Olympic swimmer demonstrating swimming techniques and elevates it to art that is captivating and visually alluring! Taris makes you want to take a camera and film just as much as it makes you want to jump in a pool.

A documentary about swimmer Jean Taris. A beautiful and experimental film, especially the underwater scenes.
