Audience Reviews for Marseille

  • Aug 06, 2012
    The camera in Marseille seems to be a mere spectator. Unaware of it is portraying, it unveils Sophie only when she allows to be observed. Unable to invade her privacy, it can only, like we, form a sketch of the young photographer, without never glimpse her interior. Schanelec says she wanted to show the mental state of Sophie, herr reactions to what happens to her, the consequences, and not things that she could leave to our imagination; however, these gaps, these fleeting spaces are what form the whole picture and are the most interesting about it. As Sophie takes pictures of Marseille to see it and then understand it, we join the "snapshots" of her stay in Marseille and of her life in Berlin in order to form the complete picture, without knowing that it will never be completed. The transition from Marseille to Berlin is quite interesting, since it occurs without any prior notice. The only sign is the change of the language, or, for those who have watched Angela Schanelec's previous films, the presence of the actress Sophie Aigner, protagonist of Place in the City and one of the characters of "Passin Summer" (the little boy Louis Schanelec is also present in all the three films). Another interesting point in Marseille is the presentation of Ivan and Hanna and their jobs: the long minutes he photographs workers of a factory and when we follow the exhaustive reharsal of Strindberg's The Dance of Death where Hanna plays the maid Jenny, initially seem to be unconnected parts that not belong to the film we are watching. Sophie's relationship with the couple is also another unclear point. Although the synopsis presented by Peripher Filmverleih says that Hanna is her best friend and that Sophie nurtures an undeclared love for Ivan, their relationship is much closer to a relationship of sisters and the supposed love was something I never considered. Reading about the movie, I came to a review where the author raises the possibility of a parallel between Marseille and Chekhov's "The Seagull "that, in fact, appears in Schanelec's next film: "We think of Chekhov, of course, not only because the child is called Anton (Anton Chekhov), but also because of this sly, mild, severe, deep and bright tone - all at the same time. Also, Chekhov is mentioned. Anton talks about her mother, that said in a play: 'I am a seagull'. "
