Norwid: Cenusa si Diamant

"Scntei ?i fl?c?ri, o, tor?? aprins?/
Arzi intre zari necontenit/
Dar cine ?tie, libertate nestins?/
C?tigi sau pierzi ce-ai cucerit?/
Cenu?a doar, pierdut?-i n neant/
?i va fi urma,sau va mai r?mne/
S? ard?-n spuz? viu un diamant/
Stea vestitoare-a zorilor de mine".

Ashes and Diamonds (Popil i diament, Poland, 1958) The Case for Global Film

extraordinary cinema

Jonathan Rosenbaum makes the point that while this film is about the forties, its set on the day of the Nazi surrender, its overlayed by a fifties sensibility. This is evident through the James Dean-like Zbigniew Cybulski (though Rosenbaum cites Brando) but also in the European Art cinema style in which its shot. The heavy symbolism of the still above is a good example. Add to that the melodrama of the young man, whos fighting against the Communists and wrestling with his conscience whilst falling in love with the beautiful, and melancholic, barmaid, you have cinema made for me.

This blu-ray edition looks terrific and so emphasises the wonderful cinematography with stunning Expressionist lighting. Director Andrezj Wadja was clearly influenced by Bergman, I love the horse that simply walks into the mise en scene, but also Welles, particularly his use of deep focus.

The film brilliantly dissects a moment in history when everything for Poland was going to change (except in a way it didnt as they, once again, became dominated by a foreign power). The possiblities of the time, those grabbing power, the splintering of families due to the war, are all portrayed in an affecting human story. Cybulski plays Maciek whos been sent to assassinate a Communist Party official; he fails but has the night to fulfill his task except thats when he meets the barmaid.

The officials son is part of the reactionary forces that are opposing the Russian takeover, however the bourgeoisies grab for power is in full swing anyway, shown by the small town majors celebration at being appointed a minister. The climax of the party, where they are all drunkenly dancing to a bastardised version of a Polish national song, is truly surreal. As is the denouement for Maciek, in a setting worthy of Bunuel.

Im not sure if Wajdas in or out of fashion at the moment, very few of his recent films have been distributed in UK; hes still making them and is 86 next Tuesday. Ashes and Diamonds forms the third in his War Trilogy, A Generation (Pokolenie, 1955) and Kanal (1957); there are all must-see films. The first two, the narratives are unconnected, have a pronounced debt to neo-realism; Ashes and Diamonds is a triumph of expressionist cinema.

Its a great film. You prompted me to look for any material Id got on the film. I found something Id written which also referred to expressionist camerawork but then I discovered a statement by Wajda himself (Double Vision: My Life in Film, faber & faber 1989) in which he tells us that Kanal and Ashes and Diamonds appeared in the context of Rossellinis Rome, Open City and Ren Clments The Battle of the Rails. These are both realist films, deep-focus being a possible function of neo-realist cinematography on location (as long as there is sufficient light). In the Wallflower 24 Frames series, Janina Falkowska admits that the film has been seen as surrealist, neo-realist or baroque but also as a realistic and accurate portrayal of the post-war realities of Poland. And its apparently the best example of the Polish schools romantic-expressionist paradigm (as noted by Ewa Mazierska). Falkowska also points out that the opening scene begins with a reference to a famous Polish painting and she reminds us that Wajda has an art background. Later on she refers to Wajdas background in learning about filmmaking in the context of the socialist realist tradition.

I suppose Im just suggesting caution in your certainty about the references to Bergman and Welles.

Zbigniew Cybulski, de fapt, mult mai important dect James Dean cu care este comparat
