If you just want a film version of Medea do not buy this. Her face and body language alone – she has few lines of dialogue – convey the full range of Medea’s emotions from romantic love, lust, submission, motherly love and tenderness, despair and distress at betrayal and loss, and full-blown rage. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness. A golden sheen suffuses the film with many scenes apparently shot at sunset and twilight. In scenes depicting Medea’s Colchis heritage, the male throat-singing roars and droning bugles come to the fore and they create a rich, sensuous, rippling sound. Required fields are marked *, (function( timeout ) { This film will always be a personal favourite of mine for its exploration of a human society and the kind of woman it produces, who, transplanted to another society built on completely different values which rob her of most of her powers save that of love, must respond with a terrible and deadly vengeance when the man she loves disowns her. This is acting as it should be done. Pasolini + Callas together in an explosive and enthralling version of Euripides' masterpiece. Pier Paolo Pasolini): rich film of social analysis and the oppression of women. The acting by all are first class. Visually, we are provided mainly with landscapes, profiles and facial expressions. When she learns he’s to marry the king’s daughter, Medea tames her emotions and sends gifts via her sons; then, loss overwhelms her and she unleashes a fire storm on the king, the bride, and Jason. I'm not much of a film critic, and to be perfectly honest I only watched the film because Maria Callas was in it. Maria Callas is simply awesome, so much so that Jason is literally buried by Callas/Medea's formidable character and acting. Learn how your comment data is processed.

To win the kingdom his uncle took from his father, Jason must steal the golden fleece from the land of barbarians, where Medea is royalty and a powerful sorceress, where human sacrifice helps crops to grow. This film captures the violent clash between primitive Greece and even more primitive Middle East culture of magic and women's subjection, as well as the violence typical of Euripides' tragedies. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 28, 2020. I love her work in opera and was intrigued when I found out that she starred in this one film. The film is watchable, with patience, but unlike many so-called art-films, the patience is rewarded immediately. Letteratura greca — Analisi della figura mitologica di Medea, da Euripide a Christa Wolf, attraverso il teatro di Alvaro e il cinema di Pasolini Accompanied by a group of heroes (the Argonauts), Jason arrives in Colchis and meets Medea in a temple: they both fall in love. Everything about this film I find original and stupendous: it often has the look of an anthropological documentary and the most significant scenes are ones not in the original story. Here Pasolini tells us that thinking a thought and making it concrete in speech or (later) visualising it is a necessary first step in carrying it out: the concept precedes reality. Luigi Cherubini's "Médée" (in the corrupt Italian version) had been one of her great assumptions in the theatre, and the Colchian sorceress long held a fascination for her. This DVD edition, though, is quite acceptable compared to others (like the Water-Bearer DVDs). Medea, furious at Jason’s betrayal, destroys his future happiness and leaves him a lonely and disconsolate man with nothing. It’s creepy and exhilarating at the same time, pulsing with raw life-force. Renown as a singing-actress, she was often approached by film producers and directors, hoping to interest her in the cinema. The flavour is exotic with a fresh, raw feel that comes with the use of non-actors and much improvisation, and the desert settings (much of the film was made in Turkey) take viewers back to a time when civilisation had barely begun to spread across the eastern Mediterranean region.
