COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Victor Kossakovsky observe une petite rue de Saint-Pétersbourg depuis sa fenêtre... Une comédie poétique et contemplative qui met en scène la pluie, le vent, la neige, des amoureux, des petites vieilles, des ouvriers... De la fenêtre de son appartement, Victor Kossakovsky filme le petit square d’une rue de Saint-Pétersbourg tout au long de l’année qui précède les célébrations du 300e anniversaire de la ville. En permanence, la chaussée est cassée puis repavée. Il pleut souvent, parfois il neige, les saisons défilent et la population s’adapte. Sous la pluie torrentielle, certains courent, d’autres rasent les murs ou se couvrent la tête d’un sac plastique. Un couple investit la chaussée, patauge dans les flaques, s’embrasse, créant une atmosphère comique imprégnée de la poésie printanière du square...

"Director Victor Kossakovsky describes this film as “a comedy.” Tishe! was inspired by both the first picture in the history of photography, View from the Window at Le Gras (1826-1827) by Nicéphore Niépce, and the short story Des Vetters Eckfenster (My Cousin's Corner Window, 1822) by E. T. A. Hoffman. The latter tells the story of a paralyzed man whose sole contact with the outside world is the view from his window. Kossakovsky made what he calls an “accidental” film: “We don't normally look at things that are right in front of us. This is in a way an example of what can evolve right in front of your eyes if you care to look.” From his apartment window, he filmed a St. Petersburg street over the course of a year, during endless roadwork in preparation for the city’s 300th anniversary celebration in 2003. Time and again, the street is ripped open and repaved. The film shows each repair from the same point of view, but with different lenses, at various times of day and in varying styles – realistic, surreal, abstract. “Tishe,” which is Russian for “Hush,” is the only word spoken in the film."
