Gustave Courbet was born in  La  Vallée de la Loue (Loue Valley) in Franche-Comté on June 10th 1819 .He studied in Besançon and Paris. His family wanted him to study law but he preferred drawing and painting. He spent a lot of his time in museums copying a huge amount of paintings and eventually stopped studying law. He was politically involved in La Commune and was attributed the destruction of La Colonne Vandôme.

He liked saying “Courbet sans les courbettes”.It means that he was a very straightforward person with a lot of  personality- at times, too much!He wrote many interesting pamphlets and letters to explain his viewpoints  about painting. He didn’t want to work for the Académie des Beaux-Arts and refused any type of promotion linked to the government because he wanted to be a free “thinker”.

He had a son who  died when he was 25 years old .

He was condemned by the French government and put in prison.  He died in exile in Switzerland on December 31st 1877. The debate about his responsibility or the absence of responsibility in the destruction of the Column is  still going on.

His painting has the realism of every day life:

-people  at work

-people coming back from a burial

-ordinary people  at a burial

-hunting scenes with realistic details

-ordinary people by the riverside

-nudes  with realistic details

-portraits and landscapes of his region

The common key-word and denominator between the two  people is  r e a l i s m .

 

Ken Loach was born on June 17th 1936. He started studying law  and eventually became a comedian. He is interested in shooting films and documentaries about  daily life.He becomes  the reference for “docudrama”, a mixture of fiction and documentaries.

He wants to show the difficulties of people in today’s world. The words  which best sum up his work are= dark and gloomy, depressive  and depressed, depression,  gloominess and darkness.

He usually resorts to ordinary people rather than real actors.

He likes shooting films about the working-classes.
  Kes (1969)  is a film about a young boy who trains a kestrel in an ordinary working-class family with very ordinary people.

 

-cinema as a tool for understanding our world

-cinema should inform, educate and high light our human condition

-cinema should stress important elements in people’s daily life=

their problems in their jobs and their family relationships.

-cinema should serve politics, ethics and economy more than entertainment.

– “Humour is essential to our humanity”. “It is a question of  survival.”

– Football is part and parcel of social life in working class families

Regions shot by the artist:

 Sheffield, Manchester-Liverpool , Glasgow.

A1- A2 – B1 Gremlins by Joe Dante

Gremlins by Joe Dante


 

What 's the name of the imaginary creatures?

The word mogwai is the transliteration of the Cantonese word ?? (mo1 gwai2) (Mandarin Chinese: ??; pinyin?mógu?) meaning "monster", "evil spirit", "devil" or "demon".


grem·lin  (grmln) (The Free dictionary)

 

1. An imaginary gnome-like creature to whom mechanical problems, especially in aircraft, are attributed.
2. A maker of mischief.

[Perhaps blend of Irish gruaimín, bad-tempered little fellow (from Middle Irish gruaim, gloom, surliness) and goblin.]
Word History: Elves, goblins, and trolls seem to be timeless creations of the distant past, but gremlins were born in the 20th century. In fact, gremlin is first recorded only in the 1920s, as a Royal Air Force term for a low-ranking officer or enlisted man saddled with oppressive assignments. Said to have been invented by members of the Royal Naval Air Service in World War I, gremlin is used in works written in the 1940s for "an imaginary gnomelike creature who causes difficulties in aircraft." The word seems likely to have been influenced by goblin, but accounts of its origin are various and none are certain. One source calls in Fremlin beer bottles to explain the word; another, the Irish Gaelic word gruaimín, "ill-humored little fellow." Whatever the word's origin, it is certain that gremlins have taken on a life of their own.


They are called gremlins, gnomes, elves, goblins.


In  our film, there is an opposition between “mogwai”: the pure, intact and innocent creature before its “fall” and  “ gizmo”, the nickname given to “mogwai”  by Billy’s father, the inventor of the American family.

A gizmo is an object, an artefact= un truc, un machin

Prologue :


Friends, let me introduce myself.

 

Peltzer's the name.

Rand Peltzer.

 

That's me there on the corner.

 

I'm an inventor.

 

And I have a story to tell.

 

I know.

Who hasn 't got a story?

 

Well, nobody's got a story like this one.

 

Nobody.

 

It all started here in Chinatown.


Where does the scene take place?

The  first scene takes place in the streets of Chinatown, New York City in the USA.

Are the streets deserted?

No, they  aren’t deserted. Quite the opposite!

Are there many people in the streets?

Yes, there are many people in the streets.

It is dark and the scene takes place during the night.

Who is the film-maker?

Joe Dante is the film-maker.  He  is very fond of  horror and keen on suspense.

He likes shooting films with a lot of  actions and suspense.

What is your first impression?

The beginning is mysterious, strange and scary because of the dark streets at night.

It is also strange because of the full moon.

Elements contributing to suspense:

-          Actions and  more particularly sudden actions

-          Music: rhythmic music, classical music, music including strong and weak  beats and rhythms

-          Full moon, dark streets, night, silence

-          Other elements: the beginning of the film when the narrator says that his story is different from other stories and that it is the best!


A manichean view of the world or a film in black and white: the goodies and the baddies

Who are the goodies?

Billy and his girlfriend, Gizmo, the wise Chinese grand-father

Who are the baddies?

The gremlins (but not really their fault)


I underline the correct words or expressions describing the gremlins  in red and in green the words describing Gizmo:

strange- bizarre- nice and beautiful-scary and frightening - they give me the creeps!-cute and affectionate- smiling and friendly- devilish, cruel  and vampire-like-creepy!- innocent and pure- wicked

Il faut deviner de quelle scène  il s’agit et reporter le nom des  personnages qui parlent:
  Honey, this is the gentleman who sold me the mogwai.
 "Sold. " An interesting choice of words.
               Conflicting eyewitness reports concerning "little green men"..
       
You teach him to watch television?
              
There was, I believe, a box.
                   Dad... .
                  Rand, your scarf.
                   I warned you.                 
With mogwai comes much responsibility.But you didn't listen.
And you see what happens.
   I didn't mean it.
 You do with mogwai what your society...has done with all of nature's gifts.                  
You do not understand.                 
You are not ready.
He has something to say to you.
 You understand what  he says when he speaks to you?
 To hear, one has only to listen.  
                
Bye, Billy.
         Perhaps someday you may be ready.       
           
Until then, mogwai...will be waiting.
 Excuse me, sir.                  
Before you go, I wanted to tell you...that I am truly sorry for what's happened.
 And if you would accept it, I'd like to...give you this small token.
          There's one other one.                 This is an invention of mine.
    Smokeless Ashtray.
 How did you know?
 Man at gas station tried to sell me.
 Latest word in technology.
                   Very generous of you.
               I'm sure it will come in handy
                   Well, that's the story.
  So if your air conditioner goes on the fritz, your washing machine blows up...
...or your video recorder conks out....before you call the repairman ...turn on the lights, check the closets and cupboard and...
look under all the beds.
 Because you never can tell.
There just might be  a gremlin in your house.

Prologue:

They possessed the art of disappearing swiftly and silently.[...]

For they are a little people, smaller than Dwarves[...]. Their height is variable, ranging between two and four feet of our measure. [...] All hobbits had originally lived in holes in the ground.

wikipedia

  • Plusieurs extraits de films sont visibles à divers moments du film. Il s'agit de :
    • Blanche-Neige et les Sept Nains (1937) : le dessin animé que regardent les Gremlins au cinéma.
    • L'Invasion des profanateurs de sépultures (1956) : Billy et Gizmo regardent ce film dans la chambre pendant que les mauvais mogwaïs s'empiffrent. Gizmo semble être assez effrayé par le film !
    • La vie est belle (1946) : la mère de Billy regarde ce film à la télé tout en faisant la cuisine (elle affirme que ce dernier est triste), juste avant que le père ne revienne avec le Mogwai.
    • Pour plaire à sa belle (1950) : Gizmo est très ému par ce film lorsqu'il le regarde à la télé dans la chambre de Billy. À la fin du film, il y repense lorsqu'il parcourt le magasin de jouets en voiture.
  • Parmi les références à d'autres films, on peut noter :
    • L'Empire contre-attaque (1980) : lorsque Stripe qui envoie tout ce qui lui tombe sous la main sur Billy, référence à la scène entre Dark Vador et Luke à la fin de l'épisode V de Star Wars.
    • Hurlements (1981) : lorsque Billy descend à la cuisine afin de chercher de la nourriture pour les Gremlins affamés, on aperçoit un "souriard" sur la porte du frigo. Celui-ci annonçait la venue du loup-garou dans Hurlements du même réalisateur. Plus tard, des photos du film sont affichées dans le cinéma où les Gremlins regardent « Blanche-Neige ».
    • La Machine à explorer le temps (1960) : lorsque Rand appelle sa femme depuis le congrès des inventeurs, on aperçoit derrière lui la machine à explorer le temps en train de monter en puissance. Puis on voit les cocons, et lorsque la caméra revient au congrès, la machine a disparu, laissant des visiteurs perplexes.
    • Flashdance (1983) Dans la scène du bar, on peut voir un Gremlins en tenue de danseuse imiter la chorégraphie de l'héroïne de Flashdance.
    • Planète interdite (1956) : on aperçoit Robby le robot au congrès des inventeurs, notamment dans une conversation téléphonique où il parle avec un chapeau sur la tête. Ses paroles sont tirées de la fin de Planète interdite lorsqu'il discute de production d'alcool avec le cuistot du C57-D.
    • Le Magicien d'Oz (1939) : le personnage de Mme Deagle est très proche d'Almira Gulch, la voisine acariâtre de Dorothy. Elle vient d'ailleurs à la banque pour chercher le chien de Billy qu'elle accuse d'avoir démoli son bonhomme de neige importé de Bavière. La mort du dernier gremlins est une référence à la mort de la vilaine sorcière de l'ouest ( la sorcière reçoit de l'eau sur elle et commence à fondre = le gremlin sort de l'eau et frappé par le soleil,fond).
    • Les Aventuriers de l'arche perdue (1981) : le panneau publicitaire géant de la radio « Rockn' Ricky Rialto » est fortement inspiré de l'affiche des Aventuriers de l'Arche perdue, comme de celle de Indiana Jones et le temple maudit sorti en 1984, deux semaines avant Gremlins.
    • James Bond : Chez Dorry, Gérald le vice-président commande une vodka martini au shaker et non à la cuillère, qui est la boisson préféré du célèbre agent secret.
    • Poltergeist : Lorsque Steven Spielberg fait son apparition sur un chariot avec la jambe plâtrée, il visionne une scène de Poltergeist.
    • E.T. l'extra-terrestre : Quand le gremlin débranche la ligne téléphonique, il dit "téléphone maison". On peut aussi distinguer une figurine de E.T. dans le magasin de jouet lorsque le gremlin est caché dans les rayons.
