First Tati gives an overview of the garden, then has the camera shoot through the horizonals and verticals of the soul-less modern fence (shooting through things is a recurring theme I am drawn to see 'urban advent 19' @peta_lily - including regular creative camera tips.) Later in the film at M Hulot's brother-in-law's factory, an orange hose appears and embroiders its shape through a short scene that is pure visual delight.
I am amazed as I watch how I hear the commentary my French boyfriend kept up during the film, all those years ago pointing out the wit, the assonances. Training my eye.
I thrill at this intersection of my comedy work and the creation of images – and I am intruiged to see how my eye was informed. See also the post 'Betty Blue' 15/11/2014. Hm, interesting that orange figures here too!
The moral of today's sermon? Look at good things. They leave imprints! And celebrate the joyful power of orange.
