Dès son premier film, Sweetie, Jane Campion montrait des qualités de regard qu'elle ne fit que confirmer et amplifier avec son deuxième, An Angel at My Table / Un Ange à ma table, adapté de l'autobiographie en trois volets de la romancière et nouvelliste néo-zélandaise Janet Frame An Angel at My Table. Cette trilogie a été rééditée en français dans un coffret aux éditions Joëlle Losfeld Un ange à ma table, I, II, III, mais il semblerait que celui-ci soit épuisé et qu'il faille acquérir chaque tome séparément (voir les liens dans mon commentaire).

Film d'apparence plus classique que Sweetie, avec ses décadrages et son esthétique qui ne recherchait pas la beauté et était parfois même ouvertement désagréable, Un Ange à ma table est plus avenant. C'est aussi un portrait de femme, comme tous les films de Jane Campion, et à mon sens son premier grand film et son meilleur avec le plus récent Bright Star.

I felt compelled to watch An Angel At My Table after seeing it on a list of recommended films about writers. Additionally, I feel very strongly in my soul, regardless of what some of my well- meaning critics may say, that it is part of my destiny to become a writer on the side. I intend to write and publish under an alias and/or pen name and credit countless people for inspiring me (such as a recent encouraging e-mail pertaining to authorship that I received from Sean Malarkey). Still, I found An Angel At My Table motivational because this movie centers around the true life story of a woman named Janet Frame (played by Kerry Fox) who enjoys a distinguished career as a writer despite acting different from other ladies who lived around the same time period (including her biological female family members). Sadly, she is at first misdiagnosed to be schizophrenic and almost ends up having to undergo a complete lobotomy. I must leave out how she gets out of this situation for those who have yet to see An Angel At My Table. However, from my perspective, this film captures in a humane and brilliant way the highs and lows of her life. Divided into three parts, this film captures moments such as when she first falls in love and another scene where she ends up getting romantically swept off her feet by another accomplished individual. Part one transitions into part two via the action point of her going off to college. Part two to three makes the transition of her going abroad from New Zealand to England and then to Spain. Quotes from the Shakespeare play of The Tempest and another quote from Robert Burns of Duncan Gray are featured in the movie transitions.

HASH(0x910bd138) étoiles sur 5 AN ANGEL AT MY TABLE 11 août 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Cassette vidéo
Based on the autobiographies of Janet Frame. And from director Jane Campion (The Piano)
This is a wonderful portrait of the New Zealand author. Who was misdiagnosed as schizophrenic, she endured numerous treaments of electric shock therapy (over 200!) Spent eight traumatic years in a mental institution. And came very close to having a lobotomy!
It would be years before she would find the diagnosis of schizophrenia was wrong.
This movie examines Janet's early life to adulthood. A very hard childhood hampered by poverty. And many tragedies. Her older sister, Myrtle, drowned when Janet was young. One of her other sisters Isabel died (also by drowning!) when Janet was in college. And her older brother suffered from epilesy. In a time when there was not more they could do about it. He often had seizures, made him a vulnerable target for bullies at school, and it left him unfit for most work. And Janet herself suffered with terribly painful decaying teeth, she had to have ALL of them pulled at a very young age.
After her thankful release from the hospital she then went on a trip, first to England then to Spain. Where she met a young American poet, who she would formed her first relationship with.
It is a long film, but don't let that discourage you. There is never a dull moment. It's a facinating story. It's visually beautiful. Filled with tragedy but also funny and wonderfully touching moments. And the performances are fabulous. About an incredible woman who wasn't schizophrenic...just "different"
It's always remained one of my favorite films, the kind I can watch over and over.

Par Golden Girls fan - Publié sur

As a writer I can clearly understand the world Janet Frame lived in growing up. I myself was sent to a shrink for being a writer as well as for being shy and introverted. However, this is an outstanding drama of human proportions. It echoes forthcoming images of what Campion did with "The Piano" three years after she made this film. The life of Janet Frame is beautifully realized from her youthful days with a lower-class family, suffering heartbreak, loss, labeled as insane, and finding ultimate redemption in her talent as a writer. The film explores both her personal and social conflicts as well as with the men who changed her life and stirred her emotions. Very few writers and directors can ever tell a story so vividly real and powerful as Campion and Laura Jones have done here. It should offer hope and strength to those who have great dreams of success in this life yet feel mowed down by overnight sensations and those who threaten to tear down their goals. The music score adds to the emotion this film evokes. The world of a writer was never more stunningly pictured than how it is here. I highly recommend this film, especially to my fellow writers out there in this world. It is a gem of a film from one of the most gifted writers and directors our movie industry has ever known.

HASH(0x910bd5c4) étoiles sur 5 A Portrait of an Artist 30 août 2006
Par Galina - Publié sur
Format: DVD
"An Angel at My Table" (1990) made by Jane Campion is a true life-story of Janet Frame (1924-2004), New Zealand's most famous author. The film starts with young Jane, a funny -looking red haired girl, shy and quiet who knew too well that she was "poor, smelly, and unpopular". Then it follows her to misdiagnosis of schizophrenia and more than 200 electroshock treatments in a mental hospital where she had spent eight years and a severe, lifelong shyness that was her only problem. Even in the hospital she was writing and was able to have her book published - writing did save her from losing her mind. The film is based on three of her memoirs, "To the Is-land", "An Angel at My Table" and "The Envoy from Mirror City".

Jane Campion made a very affecting and quietly powerful portrait of a writer who also was a gentle and genuinely humble woman. The film is never a sentimental manipulating story of a talented but misunderstood artist. It does not idealize Frame but it is a very honest and sympathetic portrait of an artist.

A unique and original work from a gifted film artist. It tells the story of Janet Frame, one of New Zealand's most important writers. The film follows Janet's life from the time she's a small girl in school, trying to buy friends with candy, to the adult, painfully shy introvert played by Kerry Fox. It is an insightful look at the life of a woman who finally learns to appreciate herself. Remarkable.

Jane Campion's "An Angel At My Table" recounts gorgeously the not atypical but curiously individual tale of New Zealand author/poet Janet Frame. Anyone familiar with her unfairly obscure work will consider this epic a long time coming.

I imagine it must have been difficult for Campion to film the life of an author as inner directed as Frame (even her autobiographical work has as little to do with the outward world as Joyce or Beckett) but she pulls it off, and in spades. Born to a working class family in Australia, her father a railroad worker and mother a stay at home Mom (who at one time served as a housemaid for writer Katherine Mansfield), Frame's childhood is depicted beautifully with a magical realist style she would become famous for. Frame's instinctive sympathy for outcasts of society, the disabled, alienated, and mentally ill serve as a kind of omen for things to come. Toddling around like a mini Raggedy Ann with a briefcase that she could probably fit in, her sassy sister watches her awkward plight through life with a deep empathy and slight lack of understanding.

Janet felt most comfortable at home with her books, typewriter, and all her siblings around. Her first trip to college was, predictably, a complete disaster. Kerry Fox does an astounding job portraying shy introvert with nervous terror whose neuroticism could was all to easily mistaken by a well meaning teacher of Literature who mistakes a lack of hygiene for schizophrenia. His lies all too easily woo the young Janet into viewing her non existent mental illness as something romantic. "Van Gogh, Blake, you are in their company, Janet!" He brings a team of doctors into her dorm room with the suggestion that she "go somewhere to get some peace and quiet."

Many critics portray this movie as nothing but trama and misfortune from beginning to end simply because of this sequence of events. There are heartrending scenes in which this brilliant young woman (after having her bad teeth removed) is subjected to electroshock therapy. Though Frame endured over 200, this is only shown *once* (and that's enough). The scenes in an old school mental asylum are enough to make one want to reach through the screen and strangle the doctors. I'm sure theatrical pioneer and *real* schizophrenic, Antonin Artaud, would have had quite a bit to say about this film.

Janet is nearly given a lobotomy. Had a week passed without the news that she had just won a literary award and been a nominee for the Nobel Prize in Literature, this probably would have occured.

The rest of the movie is an exquisitely filmed and perfectly acted sequence of events in which the young Janet, despite her occasional depressions and hyper-fearfulness of the outside world, triumphs. The failure of the mental health system does not prevent her from self realization. Encouraged by a bohemian friend to milk her very real troubles for all they are worth, she receives unemployment and gets to do what she likes best: read and write. The only flaw in the entire film--and it is long, never losing speed for a moment--is a consistently negative characterization of the Irish. One is in a illiterate peasant and the other is a young poet who nearly impregnates Janet after drawing her into the first intimate relationship of her life. Then he leaves her.

Poems read aloud, literature made life, and the triumph of the written word and imagination are the ultimate message of this movie. The bonus features, which include a real interview with Janet Frame, are great as well. Skip "Bright Star" and see this instead.
