Have You Seen My Movie?

Have You Seen My Movie?

Synopsis

Director

An enthralling montage of magical moments of cinema-going extracted from movie history exploring the entire film-going experience: underage boys attempting to get into a cinema to see some bare flesh; pretentious debates in the queues; loading choices onto trays and of course the trailers and main feature. Films of every genre play as lovers meet, criminals hide in the dark and rapt audiences watch on.

 

"Have You Seen My Movie?" is an engaging and playful essay about watching movies. From the first frames  you  think about "The Clock" (the 24h masterpiece of Christian Marclay, where Paul Anton Smith was an assistant editor) but after the 'story' develops you also realise how close it is to "Film Ist". "A Girl and Gun" by the maestro Gustav Deutsch, the film which used the famous JL Godard’s quote: “All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl”. And that is exactly what the film reflects through images: criminal conspiracies, brief romantic encounters as well as red carpets and industry scenes.

 

Clips from over 1000 scenes of films traversing the Golden Age of Hollywood, British Classics and Italian Neorealism come together in touching and emotional piece of filmaking. All in all, it’s a film about what fascinates us about cinema and what catches our attention.

This film is one of the best ways to open your mind our new section “Rebels with a Cause”.
