Video: Walerian Borowczyk - Les Jeux des Anges, 1964
Excerpt from Angel Games in a Machine world Walerian Borowczyk’s Les jeux des anges (1964), December 01, 2011, by Patricia Bass for Eastern European Film Bulletin
The film was made in France, six years after Borowczyk moved from Poland to collaborate with such French cinematographic stars as Chris Marker, whose influence upon the film is clear. Marker’s unique photographic style (see: La Jetée, 1962, the “roman-photo” constructed from rapidly montaged still images) is evident in the speed of the moving “beings” of Borowczyk’s film, as well as in his still shots, mechanical camera movements, and rapid scene changes.
