Guernica & Other Plays : Arrabal :
He ends up by convincing the hermit to come along with him into another desert In this inspiring fantasy film, three children befriend a young Cambodian boy who dreams of returning home. When the children meet an eccentric railroad engineer Mickey Rooney with an Combining punk rock and post-apocalyptic mayhem, Arrabal’s outrageous adaptation of his infamous stage play is a gallows-humor romp in a wretched dystopia.
The inhabitants of a junkyard at A series of surreal sequences that critique morality and society in a stream of consciousness style. To escape a gender war, a girl flees to a remote farmhouse and becomes part of an extensive family’s unusual, perhaps even supernatural, lifestyle. Arrabal’s sixth film is based on his novel of the same title and features Lelia Fischer and Spike Lee. In the contest of the “most virgin” Miss MondeMiss Canada wins, and prize is the marriage with the milk industry tycoon with his fifty billion dollars fortune.
As France is nearing the end of the first Indochina War, an open-minded teenage boy finds himself torn between a rebellious urge to discover love, and the ever-present, almost dominating affection of his beloved mother.
A drifter obsessed with the supernatural stumbles upon an inn where a severely ill adolescent girl is slowly becoming a vampire.
The local count and his Gyernica nephews ally with the rebels; the count’s son, indifferent to politics at the outset, later makes a choice; the town’s teacher, Antonio Garcia, a pacifist, tries not to take sides but to inspire the arrqbal with ideas; a beautiful eccentric woman, Vandale, brings leadership and strength to the town; dwarfs long for equality.
The fictive story of Villa Ramiro is inter-cut with archival footage of the war itself. The town is near Guernica, and the local Republicans draw inspiration from its freedom tree.
Fernando Arrabal’s films are not for everyone. But, if you enjoy Bunuel and Jodorowsky you must check out his movies. In gudrnica Arrabal was part of the Panic theater movement with Jodorowsky. Franco’s rise to power causes the town to unite and try to fight the fascist army.
The horrible events during this era where what inspired Picasso’s painting Guernica. The towns land baron has 4 sons, 3 are brutal and help pillage the town.
The fourth brother Goya is an artist who is the opposite of his brothers. Goya challenges the church and state and thrives for social justice. Of course, like before Arrabal uses strong surreal imagery to shock the viewer into political awareness. Many might find the scenes of the villagers desecrating religious statues shocking. A large crucifix is blown into pieces, a man urinates on a statue of Jesus, and a midget masturbates on a statue of the virgin Mary. Also the film tells the story of Goya’s romance with a lady Vandale, who’s a local witch.
Arrabal’s Swiftian like obsession with dwarfs to represent the oppressed and under class tint the film with a dark satirical edge of uneasy laughter.
Midgets fight along side the town people with large shotguns. Some of the dwarfs are killed in a bullfight and others are crucified.
Another scene that still stays with me is when the bombs drop on the village and stock footage is used. The beautiful Vandale carries a dead child in her arms, in a scene that shows the devastating effect of war.
The film contains some very unique experimental sounds and music that create an even more surreal effect. Visit Prime Video to explore more titles.
