Details

Vacanza permanente is without a doubt Arrietta's roughest film: the effort he is making can be felt, but it is just this effort that is so moving when one knows the rest of his work. We are in his laboratory, watching him look for grace in the most ordinary objects, for possibilities in a few faces and gestures, for fragments of fiction in certain juxtapositions of scenes, for ghosts on a TV screen: 'Delight me' the filmmaker seems to murmur to everything he films. - Marcos Uzal, Vertigo #39 As the decades go by, Arrietta the filmmaker is becoming more self-assured but also more pessimistic. Vacanza permanente is immune to loneliness. Paris was a celebration, Madrid no longer is: always the loneliness of comings and goings (the shot of Cocteau's angel in The Testament of Orpheus reappears, as it did forty years earlier, in Imitation de l'ange). Arrietta manages uncertainty and darkness, and the mind focuses on illusions which sooner or later become real. One begins to imagine his drawings - for Arrietta began painting before filmmaking - and to envision his apartment as a curiosity shop. Vacanza permanente suggests one such composition. - Philippe Fauvel, Vertigo #39 I had the impression that it was my first film. In making it, I felt the same motivation as I had with Le Crime de la toupie, it was asif I was rediscovering cinema. - Adolpho Arrietta Arrietta's films become more personal, returning to amateur equipment and reduced cast and crew. In his latest essay Vacanza Permanente, Arrietta discovers and enthusiastically embraces digital editing at home.
