Description du produit

The film depicts its protagonist, Joseph (Jan Nowicki), traveling through a dream-like world, taking a dilapidated train to visit his dying father in a sanatorium. When he arrives at the hospital, he finds the entire facility is going to ruin and no one seems to be in charge, or even caring for the patients. Time appears to behave in unpredictable ways, reanimating the past in an elaborate artificial caprice. The many occurrences in this visually potent Joseph Phantasmagoria include re-entering childhood episodes with his eccentric father being arrested by a mysterious unit of soldiers, reflecting on a girl he knew in his Boyhood and bringing historic wax figures to life with names from a postage stamp album. Throughout his strange journey, to ominous blind train conductor reappears like a death figure. Has then adds a series of reflections on the Holocaust that were not present in the original novel, reading Schulz's prose through the prism of the author's tragic death during World War II and the demise of the world he described.

The Hour-Glass Sanatorium (Sanatorum Pod Klepsydra) is an unusual film directed by Wojciech Has, which is based on a novel by Bruno Schultz. The story begins with Józef (Jan Nowicki) arriving by train to a sanatorium to visit his father. The sanatorium is immense and in disrepair, with vegetation growing out of the floor in nearly every room and hallway. There is a strangeness to this place as time seems to stand still here. Józef finds only a nurse and a doctor tending to all the sleeping patients there.

Józef is told he can go to sleep and rest, bringing us into the strange world of his dreams, which are like a hodgepodge of his past and fantasies. The Hour-Glass Sanatorium captures the essence of dreaming in which at any given moment the scene changes and completely bizarre happenings are taken to be normal. Wandering the dizzy maze of Józef's past leaves us grasping for meaning. The edges of reality are blurred and the nature of most of the events is truly comparable to hallucinations.

Although there is sure to be a lot of symbolism that one can find mixed into the story, one icon that is hard to overlook is the birds. There are birds throughout the movie, perhaps because Józef's father has an affinity to them. Furthermore, another inescapable element is that many of the characters in the film are Jewish and has a lot of imagery related to Judaism. The dress (or undress) of the women in the movie also deserves comment. Many of the women wear loose gowns that periodically expose their bosom or are not dressed at all, but not much notice is given to this fact.

The visual beauty and complexity of The Hour-Glass Sanatorium is staggering.

The visual beauty and complexity of The Hour-Glass Sanatorium is staggering. However, I don't think everyone will appreciate it, as a seemingly nonsensical film about strange dreams is not for everyone. Viewers who have an appreciation for unusual and intense cinema, such as Andrej Zulawski's work, are likely to find this surrealistic horror to be fulfilling.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally, a DVD of this macabre kaleidoscope! 11 décembre 2008
Par S. Mobia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
After waiting over 2 decades for some kind of video release of "Hour-glass Sanatorium" (or "The Sandglass" as it used to be called), Mr. Bongo in England has put out a passable transfer of this astonishing creation. If you've never seen or heard about this one, you're in for an overwhelming experience. Probably the most authentically "dreamlike" feature film ever made, the complex web of events here is impossible to summarize in a rational plot description. Though its evocation of a Jewish culture completely wiped out from Poland during WW2 is reason alone to watch, it really is about loss and the evanescence of life, memory and imagination. The DVD transfer is fair but is presented in 1.85:1 rather than in its original scope format (2.35:1). Because of this, characters often appear too near the edges of the frame and background detail is sometimes lost. The frequently awkward subtitles are not as good as the translations in the theatrical prints I've seen. Still, since this film is easily one of the masterpieces of cinema, at least now it can be seen by a wide audience.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Hourglass Sanatorium 15 mai 2011
Par mirage - Publié sur Amazon.com

Other reviewers have given much more detailed analysis of this film and the history thereof, which I could not equal or do better. So here is my simple review. The film uses techniques which one could say are dreamlike but also they evoke something of an almost hallucinatory/LSD movie trip film from the late 60's or 70's. So I would say in some ways the technique is slightly dated, but it doesn't mean bad. It is a kind of grand experimental film from a bygone era. It is a stream of consciousness from a dream/drug trip with the thread it is always coming back to that the main character's father has recently died, or he has been dreamed back to life only to comment on his own death or of the trivialities of his life and times. The main character, the son, travels through this world as though he's traveling through his father's mind. Perhaps this is an influence for the film "Being John Malkovich", there are some similarities. At times it evokes humor, at other times it is perplexing. If you aren't at least a little versed in history, psychology and philosophy with a touch of physics you might become somewhat lost and frustrated. It can be a bit of a roller coaster ride with very little explanation and for the average viewer some of the explanations that are given might at times seem opaque, but like looking at a great painting, if you can look deeper into the context and into yourself you might find a personal meaning for you that was not necessarily intended by the director. This is the definition of great art. Everyone who looks at it finds their own meaning in it. Its beauty, or ugliness is in the eye of the beholder. You may love it, hate it, or be perplexed by it, but you think about it and talk about it. The book this is based on may be a classic of literature, but I am reviewing the movie, not the book. No movie will ever be "Just like the book". They have to be separated, they are two different art forms. Nothing can equal the movie you can make in your mind while reading a book. A screenwriter and a director do their interpretation and translate it into their vision in a different medium. To compare the two just isn't fair to either of them. A movie has to be evaluated on its own terms.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 wandering a dolorous landscape -- 29 janvier 2016

Don't be deterred by anyone dismissing 'Hourglass Sanatorium' as a disjointed exercise in excess. Yes, it demands patience and a willingness to find its wave-length among its visual and thematic vicissitudes. However this is a puzzle box of a film that trusts us to draw upon our own perceptions, biases, educations and politics to decipher its wonders. Yet there's nothing random here -- each sequence, transition and contextual reference to ethnic and class struggles is precisely plotted. Director W. Has immerses us in a dream-state/nightmare, wandering a dolorous landscape that few filmmakers are able to accomplish (think of Altman's "3 Women" and "Fellini Satyricon".) Each set-up, choice of lens and angle drives us on towards Has' parallax view of socio-political mania. In the end it commits the sin of running 15 minutes longer than required to create its impact and it will most likely vex the majority of contemporary audiences, who demand a pre-fab plot-line. Still if one can find its rhythm and measure, they're in for an unforgettable "nachtmare".
