SIN - A DOCUMENTARY ON DAILY OFFENCES

SIN - A DOCUMENTARY ON DAILY OFFENCES

In this early documentary based on the seven deadly sins, Helke and Suutari shift ordinary people in ordinary places literally into the centre: captured in tableaux vivants, alone or in groups, the people stare into the camera and make their „confessions“. A collection of admissions of everyday transgressions, which are far more tormenting than the seven deadly sins could ever be. Text panels against the background of the forces of nature (water, storms, ...) structure the confessions and distressing experiences. What becomes tangible under the rigid stylistic corset is that which will also subsequently mark the work of these two filmmakers: transience and memory as painful human experience. (mp)
