Michelangelo Antonioni – Wim Wenders: Beyond the Clouds Analysis from the Point of View of Refexivity

KASSAY Réka


Abstract:

The paper is an analysis of the movie Al di là delle nuvole (Beyond the Clouds) from the standpoint of reflexivity. Interpreting the relationship between Antonioni and Wenders, the aim of the research is to describe the language of film used in order to generate the self conscience of the author and its means to build the allegories of film(making). Dealing with direct and indirect reflexivity and the conscience of authorship for the work of the two directors, Kassay Réka uses the formal techniques of movie production in order to explain the emotional and aesthetic consequences of such techniques.
