The Chase
16 mm on DVD, 2009

Violence is personified in stereotypes that represent pure threat, collective and individual.

Two middle aged men walk in the forest, they look threatening. They are predators that are themselves trapped in an endless hunt which that they cannot escape and that gradually questions their status.

The scenery, between a war scene and a slasher movie, is emphasized by the smoke produced by two hooligans. The hooligans are the European face of the evil and of collective violence. But the hooligans are connected to a fairy tale that they corrupt. These characters become functional, they serve the catharsis and the evil gets sculptural.
