Home Stories

Second film by Matthias Müller and now a classic of found footage cinema. Several actresses of Hollywood melodramas of the 50s and 60s repeat almost identical gestures in bed, switching on a lamp, peering behind a door... Glamorous faces (Lara Turner, Tippi Hedren and Grace Kelly) recompose a dark Hollywood where women seem trapped in incredible mansions and wear pearl necklaces. According to the author, in Home Stories, the cause of the growing paranoia is hidden outside the shot. What these women are responding to is their own cinematographic representation, as if panic and dementia were caused by their own image. An approach to the female role from the study of gender in a masterful montage.
