L'ANGE
(version restaurée)

by Patrick BOKANOWSKI
1982 / 35mm / color / sound / 1S / 70' 00

Restoration completed in 2015. The 4K scan was made by the laboratory Eclair Group using the best available sources: namely, the original 35mm negative for the image and an element digitized from the 35mm magnetic soundtrack for the sound.
The entire restoration process was supervised and approved by Patrick and Michèle Bokanowski.

The project has been led by Light Cone with the aid of a selective grant for the digitization of cinematographic works belonging to cultural heritage by the CNC.

The climbing of an immense staircase made up of the most varied stairs.Symbolic scenes occur on different levels where (the) characters seem to be prisoners of their deeds and of their own folly.Attacks, explosions, maniacal and despairing searching, objects which independently move, walls, floors and ceilings which form and disperse .The steep staircase leads little by little towards the zones of great light where human beings and nonhuman beings meet.

Less than ever, the usual term "soundtrack" cannot be applied to the original music composed by Michèle BOKANOWSKI for "L'ANGE", the music which alone makes up the sound world of this film without "dialogues » and without "sound effects" in the traditional sense. For this music is never a commentary, it can never be placed in a conventionally delimited part of the film, but is an integral part of its space, its pulsation, its song.


Music Composer: Michèle BOKANOWSKI
