Recommend this film

For her first film, Andrea Bussmann has chosen to film the filming of a fiction film. But it is unequivocally in no way a making of but rather a gallery of portraits of old people, residents of Mexico gathered together for the occasion in a run-down bar in the capital. None of them are actors, and do not pretend to be. They were spotted in the downtown streets where they paraded their misery, their alcoholism and their solitude and were invited to earn a few pennies patiently waiting for the camera to shoot them as extras. Profiting from the moments when the camera crew from the other film set up a shot, these extras, sitting on a seat they must not leave, confide things to the director and in a few phrases they reveal their banal and pathetic existence, for once grabbing a spotlight which is usually denied them. It is this spotlight, and a William Blake’s poem evoking it, that closes the film, given that the beautiful final sequence presents a succession of these ephemeral actors and offers them a text to which they apply themselves and stumble over, but which seems written for them. Jean-Pierre REHM
