Aus der Ferne / The Memo Book

A personal, romantic and melancholic journey of a very young Matthias Müller (who appears in the film) created as a result of the death of his lover. Feet walk through abstract landscapes mixed with scratched footage. The black and white images, punctually tinted with an oneiric sound, suggest rooms, landscapes, people and objects. At the beginning we see some hands that collect some letters and some photos as prelude to what will become a love poem. Between the different passages, the author includes a beautiful visual and auditory symphony with the tears of a chandelier. Before addressing the section entitled Jardim Botanico, the author washes and shows us a landscape of waves, creates a parallel with the sheets of the bed and finally falls asleep. The film becomes more exotic and sexual (weed, body hair), the images turned red become more abstract with extreme close-up shots of an eye, a hand, flowers, a penis... and the sound of birds as if coming from a jungle that is being explored. An exercise in memory exorcism of great beauty and sensitivity.
