N.28 - Psychoanalysis and Cinema: “Through a glass”

Lansquenet from “tranquillité” to play. Based upon the film Chocolat by Lasse Hallström

Abstract

New is amazing, it affects senses, like a cold winter wind striking one’s face, like a red cloak standing out in the dullness of late winter night, like a good hot chocolate delighting even the most suspicious palate with its aroma, like exotic music attracting even the most insensible ears; new smells of spring and reawakening. On arriving inside a group it upsets its existing balance, which in some cases has become stale and stinks of death. At first new generates suspicion or even open rebellion, however it can awaken both bodies and minds by stimulating play and creativity thus producing fresh vitality and other thoughts.
