La famille Belier

La famille Belier

Yesterday I saw this film called La famille Belier.  It was very moving and a trailer can be viewed on youtube.  The soundtrack also has a bright vivaciousness about it too. 

 

La famille Belier

The sight:

Of the countryside

Of Normandy,

Of signing

Between persons,

Flailing arms

In arcs and swings,

All

Denoting

Encoding

And decoding

Words

Thoughts

Emotions

even

The ‘sex life’

Of a couple.

Visual laughs,

Then

Come the tears.

 

The sound:

Of lowing cows,

Honking horns,

Of silence,

Of inaudible groans

Of exasperation,

Of piano keys

In syncopated rhythm,

With

The intensity

Narrated before us.

 

The sound:

Of a voice,

First feeble,

Then,

Finding

Its fissure to freedom,

Flows,

Out and out,

And flies,

From the back

Of a room to:

Teacher,

To Paris,

To us.

We hear

Its sound,

And its delicate

And unravelling

Passion.

 

The love:

Of musician for music,

Of a family,

Of friendship,

Of the melody

That flows

And circles

And gathers

Into its rhythm

The narrative

On the screen,

And plays

A meaningful resonance

On the strings

Of our hearts.
