Rundel / Gance, Schoeller "J'Accuse"

Wien Modern

Horizontal Tabs

Info
J’accuse switches between romance, drama, action, horror and embedded journalism. Gance managed to secure permission to film during combat on the Western Front – without revealing to the military that the tale of jealously would become an indictment of the war. Filming took place between summer 1918 and March 1919 on battlefields that included Saint-Mihiel near Verdun and featured soldiers who returned to the front after filming. That this meticulous restoration (EYE Amsterdam & Lobster Paris) has the power to get under your skin is thanks not least to the music by Philippe Schoeller, who will play the electronic parts in Vienna in person. A milestone in film history, with an exciting soundtrack provided live by the Wiener Symphoniker.
