This elegant, surrealist fantasy celebrates the freedom of the imagination and cinema. A man and a woman – they could be lovers, but also artists, film actors or writers of their own script – surrender themselves to a strange role-play that seems to follow the logic of a dream. In absurdist tinted fantasy scenes filled with symbolism, they realise their secret and often erotically-tinted desires. Even a model train can acquire an unexpected significance.
In this way Beduino reveals itself to be a playful and associative mosaic with a broad pallet filled with contrasts and stylistic changes. There’s room for philosophical wordplay and existential admiration, but also for exalted kitsch and tinkered cinema. Life and art, light and dark, despair and desire, poetry and pathos, tenderness and conflict measure up to each other. En passant, Bressane also found space for quotes from earlier work, including Memories of a Blonde Strangler (1971). (IFFR)
