L'Etoile de mer (1928)

This film is based on a script by Robert Desnos and depicts a couple (Alice Prin and André de la Rivière) acting through scenes that are shot out of focus.



Originally a silent film, recent copies have been dubbed using music taken from Man Ray's personal record collection of the time. The musical reconstruction was by Jacques Guillot and it fitted this film perfectly - haunting and hypnotic.



With these loose images, sometimes seen distorted through a glass, Man Ray refuses the authority of the look. We can recognize this choicee also in the editing, which draw out the disjunction between shots, rather than their continuity.
