No social status plays an actual role in the set, privilege is given, and no language or culture can step in the way, even the understanding family environment–and here one can think about the role of the father figure–can place a barrier to the characters to live out the timeless love. This island of no time and status sets the viewers to free themselves from prejudice, expectations, or anger and opens them for the emotional journey of a pure as a mountain spring unfolding love of two spirits. What happens on the screen, becomes inevitable, mystical and terrestrial in its reality, as sensual as a peach, making love with the entire world embracing women, summer nights, the wars, partisans, lake, or eggs. The scenery is vivid and eternal, drawing on the semantics of antiquity, the torso-like body images, and landscapes.
The characters are isolated in a loving and safe environment of the grande estate italiana, the great Italian summer, that itself contextualizes the happenings. The technology of retrospection in film making, thus bringing the viewer back in times when no digital technology would disturb the unfolding set of events, provides with an ideal set for zooming into the relationships with no distraction connected to device-based interactions, or objects, like cars, or clothes, being stripped from their meanings connected to material value.
The scenery for depicting eternal love is being created with the means of isolating the characters and bringing the viewer into the axis of eternal youth and fading summer. Mythological and perceived time bear multifold meanings(to be continued...). faludi julianna julianna faludi
