From time to time something new must appear in cinema, otherwise it ceases
to develop, and first and foremost spectator cinema withers away, as it
is spectator cinema that feeds on everything that does not at first meet
What we watch today, if shown fifty years ago, would have seemed insane to viewers, or at least it would have been perceived with great difficulty. On the other hand, cinema, constantly developing, loses a certain innate charm, forever moving further away from its graphic origins.
Here, however, the dilemma is resolved – it is a new cinema, but it remains inherently «cinematic».
