Carne suivi de Seul contre tous : deux films de Gaspar Noé : découpages intégraux et dossiers by Gaspar Noé( Book )

3 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Irgendwo in einer Pariser Vorstadt lebt ein vereinsamter Pferdeschlachter mit seiner Tochter, die den ganzen Tag vor dem Fernseher verbringt. Die Jahre vergehen, und der Schlachter behandelt seine Tochter immer noch so, als sei sie ein Kleinkind. Doch mit zunehmendem Alter des Kindes regen sich beim Vater inzestuöse Gefühle. Eines Tages berichtet ihm ein Kunde, dass ein Araber versucht habe, seine Tochter zu vergewaltigen. In diesem Irrglauben zieht der Schlachter blind vor Wut los und sticht den vermeintlichen Täter nieder. Daraufhin wird er verhaftet und seine Tochter in ein Heim gesteckt. Aus dem Gefängnis entlassen, verdingt der Schlachter sich als Kellner und versucht mit der Wirtin ein neues Leben zu beginnen. Mit seinem ersten Kurzspielfilm "Carne" legt Gaspar Noe ohne Umschweife die Themen dar, die sein ganzes Werk durchziehen: Liebe und Hass, Sex und Gewalt. Gnadenlos hält er dem Zuschauer die Welt eines Verlierers vor Augen, knallt ihm mit Hilfe der aggressiven Textinserts Schlagworte ins Gesicht und kreiert letztendlich doch das sensible Psychogramm eines Mannes am Rande der Gesellschaft. "Carne" sorgte auf zahlreichen internationalen Festivals für Aufsehen und wurde unter anderem 1991 in Cannes mit dem Preis für den besten Kurzfilm ausgezeichnet. Der 1963 in Argentinien geborene Gaspar Noe hat auch in seinen Filmen keine Kontroverse gescheut und zuletzt vor zwei Jahren mit seinem Spielfilm "Irreversible" seinen Ruf als Skandalregisseur gefestigt
