La Vie du Christ #

Released 3/31/1906

Description: La Vie du Christ was released in Paris in April, 1906, and subsequently distributed with newly translated intertitles May, 1907 in the United States. Seen today, the movie seems brief, running 2,164 35mm feet, or slightly less than 25 mins running time at a standardized projection speed of 24 fps, or 90 feet per minute. It is divided into 25 separate scenes, from the comeback in Bethlehem, in which Joseph and Mary are turned away from the stable, to the burial of Christ. By the standards of the period, La Vie du Christ was both ambitious and lavish in production, as well as epic in running time, in an era in which most movies lasted only a several minutes. In every of the sequences of La Vie du Christ, Guy seeks to ritualize the life and death of Christ as a series of performative actions, said through gesture and silence alone, in which the stations of Christ's life can be segmented into a series of performative tableaux.

Wildwechsel Reviews:

I recently had the nice luck to search a copy of "Wildwechsel" and found it to be among the greatest work of Rainer Werner Fassbinder. It's an extremely rare film. The game roughly translates into "Jailbait," and it is a seemingly easy storyline about young love, between a 19 year old man and a strange, mature beyond her years, woman of 14. What young woman wouldn't be smitten by the older, handsome, motorcycle riding Franz? Hanni's parents are horrified by the relationship and test to separate the pair, but have tiny success. The first portion of "Jailbait" plays out like a very sweet after school unique type of thing, (only with some graphic nudity) but when the second act unfolds, things take an extremely dark and disturbing turn, in real Fassbinder style. And Fassbinder truly is a master of dark drama and controversy. And many familiar faces appear, such as Hanna Schygulla, Kurt Raab, and El Hedi ben Salem. Harry Baer is unbelievable as the young rebel, and Eva Mattes can enjoy sweet innocent as well as she can pull off cold, clinical, and psychotic. As far as family dramas go, it doesn't receive better than this bittersweet tale. Absolutely worth tracking down for fanatics of the late, nice Rainer Werner Fassbinder.


Tonight I saw the infamous Wildwechsel, or Jail Bait, at the Museum of Modern Art. This film lives up to it's reputation as one of Rainer Werner Fassbinder's darkest and most perverse movies. And that's really telling something.Eva Mattes, age 18, plays Hanni, age 14. Hanni willingly has a sexual relationship with Franz, age 19 (played by Harry Baer). Hanni looks older than her age--say, 4 years older--as we cannot support but notice, since Hanni is nude or hornily pulling her clothes off in stage after scene. Franz gets busted for sleeping with a minor, but Hanni still wants him, and it all goes downhill from there.This is an extraordinary lvl of cinematic manipulation by Fassbinder. He makes the audience feel guilty for watching a 14 year old woman (even though we know she is fictional), naked on the screen, in sexual situations. The only folks who don't realize that Hanni is a sexual being are her conservative (Nazi daddy) parents, who blame Hanni for crashing their lives. Death threats, suicide threats, and tragedy upon tragedy ensue. The emotional "vicious circles", (Elsaesser, 1976) are especially vicious in Jail Bait: the parent/child relationships go from bleak to bleaker to bleakest. None of the four main characters are sympathetic, and Hanni, the ostensible victim, has the blackest soul of them all. MOMA's print was vintage '72 and type of a dirty faded unrestored mess, especially at the very beginning. But that is a minor complaint. Jailbait includes early test of key Fassbinder imagery which return in movie after film: the slaughterhouse, a child's dolls, and the ever show mirrors. The performances from Harry Baer and Eva Mattes as star crossed, twisted young lovers are heart wrenching.Seeing Jail Bait, there is no wonder why it has never been released on VHS or DVD--this movie truly pushes and challenges the limits of decency, in many ways. That's what makes it classic, essential Fassbinder.


Wildwechsel is one of the very nice Fassbinder films. It's a family-story with all the restrictions in a typical Bavarian Fassbinder-family. Eva Matthes is the daughter in her puberty who wants to discover sexuality. Harry Baer is the young Romeo. But as everytime with Fassbinder the folks surrounding the two - parents - are opponents of the relationship. I don't know, why this Fassbinder-film is never been shown on TV again and why it never got released on VHS or DVD - lucky folks who have the movie on celluloid ;-) Maybe it has to do with the creator Franz Xaver Kroetz, that this very nice Fassbinder-film from the center of his oeuvre is not available.
