THE BEAUTY OF GESTURE

From Pasolini to Bazin (football) via Daney or Godard (tennis), sport has fascinated many filmmakers and film theorists, as a social fact but also for its undeniable aesthetic qualities of bodies that box, swim, run, of body represented in the effort, nudes or not. This phenomenon is part of a historical continuity of the image. Indeed, we see at the end of the nineteenth century, after centuries dominated by particular religious iconography, a resurgence of this representation, notably Manet, Cezanne and Degas.
