Daniel Coulombe, ein junger, talentierter Schauspieler, erhält in Montreal durch einen katholischen Pfarrer die Chance, das jährlich in dessen Pfarrei stattfindende Passionsspiel zu modernisieren. Gemeinsam mit vier anderen, beruflich frustrierten Schauspielern, stürzt sich Daniel von Enthusiosmus in das schwierige Unternehmen. Auf der Basis aktueller Forschung entwickelt er eine völlig neue, 'andere' Inszenierung. Nach der Premiere wird er schlagartig zum neuen Theaterhelden, sowohl des breiten Publikums, als auch der kulturellen Schickeria. Daniels Auftraggeber teilt diese Begeisterung ganz und gar nicht. Er untersagt im Namen seiner Kirchenoberen weitere Aufführungen und setzt diese Entscheidung sogar mit Polizeigewalt durch. Im Verlauf eines durch den Polizeieinsatz provozierten Handgemenges während der Kreuzigungsszene wird Daniel schwer verletzt. Obwohl er sich im Krankenhaus scheinbar wieder erholt, bricht er kurz darauf deliriend zusammen und stirbt. Sein Körper wird zur Organspende freigegeben. Arcand erzählt eine gleichzeitig ernsthafte und ironische moderne Jesusgeschicht. [...]

Inside the historical film by Bruno Ramirez( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From cinema's beginnings filmmakers have turned to the past for their stories, so much so that in many ways our historical culture is shaped more in the movie theatre than in the classroom. Inside the Historical Film argues how and why film can enrich our understanding of the past. Bruno Ramirez discusses a wide range of films, from various historical and national contexts, pointing to the role that film-crafts play in translating historical events into cinematic language. He takes the reader through the process of conception, research, design, and production of several films that he researched and co-wrote, explaining the decisions that were made to best convey historical knowledge. The practice-based quality at the core of Ramirez's analysis is further enhanced by conversations with world-renowned film directors, including Denys Arcand, Constantin Costa-Gavras, Deepa Mehta, Renzo Rossellini, Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, and Margarethe von Trotta. Grounded in an appreciation for the interpretative value of making films and cinema's ability to reach large public audiences at personal and emotional levels, Inside the Historical Film seeks to understand historical films as both creative works and multi-layered representations of the past
