In the former, the donkey devoured by bees attained the nobility of a barbaric and Mediterranean myth which is certainly equal to the glamour of the dead donkey on the piano. Only a B feature, admittedly. A production shot in one month for eighteen million old francs. And the miracle took place: It is important to note the fundamental optimism of this concept.
A moral optimism first of all, which follows Rousseau in presupposing the original goodness of man, a paradise of childhood destroyed before its time by the perverted society of adults; but also a social optimism, since it assumes that society can redress the wrong it has done by making the re-education centre a social microcosm founded on the trust, order and fraternity of which the delinquent had been unduly deprived, and that this situation is sufficient to return the adolescent to his original innocence.
In other words, this form of pedagogy implies not so much a re-education as an exorcism and a conversion. Its psychological truth, proved by experience, is not its supreme instance.
It is all very well to build model farms where justice, work and fraternity reign, but so long as the same society of injustice and pain remains outside, the evil — namely the objective cruelty of the world — remains. The greatness of this film can be grasped immediately when one has sensed that it never refers to moral categories.
There is no manicheism in the characters, their guilt is purely fortuitous — the temporary conjunction of different destinies which meet in them like crossed swords. But Jaibo, the villain, though he is vicious and sadistic, cruel and treacherous, andree not inspire repugnance but only a kind of horror which is by no means incompatible with love.
These children are beautiful not because they do good or evil, but because they are children even in crime and even in death.
Em defesa do realismo, em defesa do cinema.
Their dreams are the measure of their fate. He dreams that his mother gets up in the night to offer him a cut of raw and bleeding meat, which Jaibo, hidden under the bed, grabs as she passes. We shall never forget that piece of meat, quivering like a dead octopus as the mother offers it with a Madonna-like smile. Surrealism, used it in too conscious a fashion for one to be surprised at finding in its painting symbols which it put there in the first place.
If they are generally more evil-intentioned, it is because they are more irremediably crystallised, petrified by misfortune. The blind beggar who is stoned by the children gets his revenge in the end by denouncing Jaibo to the police.

A cripple who refuses to give them some cigarettes is robbed and left on the pavement a hundred yards away from his cart — but is he any better than his tormentors? Even more than being beyond good and evil, one is beyond happiness and pity.
The moral sense which certain characters seem to display is basically no more than a form of their fate, a taste for purity and integrity which others do not have. These beings vazin no other points of reference than life—this life which we think we have domesticated by means of anddre and social order, but which the social disorder of poverty restores to its original virtuality as a sort of infernal earthly paradise with its exit barred by a fiery sword. What could be more atrocious than a child throwing stones at a blind man, if not a enxaios man taking revenge on a child?
This intention was already visible in the documentary on Las Hurdes. It hardly mattered whether this miserable tribe was really representative of the poverty of the Spanish peasant or not — no doubt it was — the important thing was that it represented human poverty. It did not matter that this was an exception, only that it was possible. This presence of beauty in the midst of atrocity and which is by no means only the beauty of atrocity ,this perenniality of human nobility in degradation, turns cruelty dialectically into an act of charity and love.
But to conclude, we must underline the fact that it is insufficient.
The taste for the horrible, the sense of cruelty, the bazun out of the extreme aspects of life, these are also the heritage of GoyaZurbaran and Riberaof a whole tragic sense of humanity which these anvre have displayed precisely in expressing the most extreme human degradation — that of war sickness, poverty and its rotten accessories. But their cruelty too was no more than the measure of their trust in mankind and in painting. Lyne and Tommy Lee Jones! You are commenting using your WordPress.
