Its debut at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival was as low-key as the subsequent sequel. Siberia, one of the most personal tapes of Abel Ferrara, narrates in a few words the search for absolution. Willem Dafoe, playing the character of Clint, he will travel a path full of situations and environments where he will be able to explore his interpretive power.
The film moves away from commercial cinema. Its narrative is confused and its enactment is changing. Everything in the film evokes a dream in which tender moments darken and vice versa. The fight between attractiveness and rejection is your main asset. Opinions will be mixed due to the ambiguity of its meaning, as it is impossible to affect all viewers in the same way.
A man flees his world to another strange and cold, a broken man who wants to be alone. Skin and fire are your only shelter. A cave in the mountains serves as a refuge and home for him. But even this extreme isolation does not bring him peace of mind. Once again, he embarks on a journey, but this time within himself. Explore your dreams, confront your memories and seek your truth in the midst of hallucinations.
One of its main features is the creation of environments. As it is a journey through the protagonist”s subconscious, the film has the luxury of creating different situations in different scenarios. While the significance of these changes is not always justified, Siberia he manages to catch us with his photograph. It wouldn”t hurt to extol the work of Stefano Falivene on this tape.
Another of his seductive features, as he well described at the beginning, is the interpretation of Willem Dafoe. Without a doubt, it can be said that it carries the weight of the film with it. Watching him dance through the hallways of his little hideaway is wonderful, not to mention the charisma he exudes in his close-ups.
Lastly, Abel Ferrara with Siberia easily put us in your game. The off-screen opening presents us with a story told by the main character. Everything changes in this universe, traumas and guilt are exposed in a thousand ways. This way of representing the story forces the viewer to make an effort in front of the screen that is as beautiful as it is despairing.
Although the pace of the movie might seem ideal in relation to what we”re looking at. Siberia it could have been done perfectly in an hour. Many of the shots have exceeded duration, which makes it impossible not to see the possible cuts.
Variety of meanings is not always an unfavorable trait, but this film doesn”t seem to include enough information to reveal its intentions. It”s totally ambiguous, everything is in the viewers” imagination. This makes thinkers, a term that would be valid to refer to their consumers, to be bored by not being able to validate their continuous hypotheses at any time.
Siberia It is an experiment controlled by the subconscious of a person with trauma. The moments of happiness will be overshadowed by the most abominable terror (cave), the dance will end with a stroke of reality and sexual passion will be transformed into maternal love. The film is still short. Some cause rejection, some attract and some cause indifference. This makes the film as unstable as the protagonist”s mind. The subconscious struggles to bring out the trauma and the guilt so that Clint finds absolution. It can be said that we will never know how this journey ends, but the experiences that are contemplated along the way are, to say the least, interesting.
No doubt, Siberia of Abel Ferrara It”s not a movie that fits every moment, specifically when you”re looking for total disconnection. There are likely several points of view to decipher the true meaning of many of its sequences, so it will receive critical criticism.
It”s not a work of art, but it”s not a bad movie either. I consider that without the performance of Willem Dafoe would not have the same impact. Its structure is flawed, as are its running rope and its pace. This lowers the temperature and makes everyone who faces the film very cold.
