Documentrary movie, recorde by Orchestre National d'Île de France

Sous les drapeaux
Special Mention at the International Festival of History Film 2008 Pessac (Gironde).
 
Fascinating collection of images collected archives to commemorate the ninetieth anniversary of the armistice of 1918, under the flags juxtaposes the most contradictory images, images of social inequality, carefree dancing, frenzied diatribes and various processions, to project ourselves in the heart of deadly explosions. And this without comment, to preserve the power of movies, and prevent the viewer to take refuge in some vain attempts to explain or in words that would be necessarily too.
 
Hence the success of the music of Jacopo Baboni Schilingi, for orchestra, amplified string quartet and live electronics, which does not replace the voice off or the old boxes, but by his lyricism makes some unreal images, silhouettes moving on an almost motionless song, while obsessive rhythm of walking emphasizes the obvious linkages and coherence of History. Music also highlights the absurdity of the facts. "Exercice of style" according to the composer himself, that partition was a laboratory of Anima-Phoenix while submitting to the wishes of the director, with its share of waltzes and hi-hat, plus a famous but well disguised anthem and some more dramatic effects when fighting invite them. Beginning and end of the film announce the same events. Music organizes thi scenario and makes the confrontation to the images so striking that we can not escape unscathed.
