26 Mar “Winter’s Howl” by Richard Schertzer
“Winter’s Howl” surprises for the strong aesthetic and narrative intimacy it manages to convey. The director’s approach is almost revolutionary. A journey into memory, into the humanity of a personal moment allow the videoclip to convey suggestions of great humanity and sincerity. On the stylistic level, the director reduces the aesthetic load of the cinematography to bring the film back to an amateur, private dimension. This surprising choice leads us into a completely unexpected space, traversed by the naturalness of faces, landscapes and camera movements.
This portrait of humanity and youthful vitality is penetrated by the vibrations of the beautiful piece that accompanies us until the end of this journey. It is evident that in this film the music and the images manage to merge in one language, without ever taking divergent directions. The result is a unique, fascinating work that expands its meanings in several directions.
