Product Description

THE TERENCE DAVIES TRILOGY
Children (1976, 44 mins) | Madonna and Child (1980, 26 mins) | Death and Transfiguration (1983, 24 mins)
Films by Terence Davies

Before Distant Voices, Still Lives and The Long Day Closes confirmed his status as one of the cinematic masters of our day, these three short early films by Terence Davies reveal a filmmaker of great early promise.

In stark black and white, Davies excavates the life of his fictional alter ego, Robert Tucker, in a narrative that slips like a shuffled pack of cards between childhood, middle age and death, shaping the raw materials of his own life into a rich tapestry of experiences and impressions.

Over the course of these films, we witness the emergence of Davies singular talent, the refinement of his technique and a director, growing in confidence, soon to become fêted as British cinema's greatest film poet.

From Amazon.co.uk

In this linked trio of short fictional films, all set in Liverpool and shot over a nine-year period, Terence Davies takes an oblique step towards the autobiographical material that he later mined for his less austere full-length features, Distant Voices, Still Lives and The Long Day Closes. Taken together, the three films trace the biography of a man over seven decades. In the first film of the trilogy, "Child", we meet the young Robert Tucker as an introverted boy, victimised at school and deeply attached to his emotionally unstable mother. The second film, "Madonna and Child" (completed while Davies was at film school) finds Tucker as a middle-aged man, torn by the conflict between his Catholic faith and his gay sexuality. The final film of the trilogy, "Death and Transfiguration", depicts Tucker (now played by Wildrid Brambell, famous from the classic TV comedy series Steptoe and Son) as an 80-year-old man dying in a hospital bed. The grimness of the subject matter, with its focus on guilt and unfulfilled longing, is offset by the beauty of Davies' imagery, the richness of his visual detail and his wry, understated wit. --Philip Kemp -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
