Lucas Marxt focuses first and foremost on a strong visual impact. And even in this short but important Marine Target, we notice a great attention to aesthetics, thanks to which the images shown to us almost take on the appearance of an abstract painting. An abstract and perfectly symmetrical painting, in which a precise contemplative mood contrasts well with the gravity of the facts shown to us. At the Viennale 2022.
A strong inner conflict is the real focus of Sparta. Ewald laughs when he plays with the children. Slowly, however, his laughter turns into a cry. A cry that nobody notices, that only vents inside a car or in the retirement home where his father is. Subtle facial expressions say more than a thousand words. Ulrich Seidl (and the excellent Georg Friedrich) render all this perfectly and show us how the protagonist is actually the only real victim of his own weaknesses. At the Viennale 2022.
