COMBAT


deutsch>>
COMBAT is the third and last part of the filmed diary started by Patrick Carpentier in 2003 and entitled "The Irregularity of the Tearing".

Two young men fight with each other. They hit each other very hard. But their fi ghting remains an act of love. There is no prize. There is no winner. There is no pride. A voice-over narrator tells a strange story in which he rediscovers the extent of his desire. Questions arise: does one infl ict pain on the other or on oneself? How can we let go in a world in which we are taught not to let ourselves be pushed around? COMBAT is a dissection of pain, of abandonment.

From documentary to fiction, The irregularity of the tearing is an intimate journey along the author’s transient love stories: two and a half years of sensuality to question intimacy, an exploration of desire and reason.
God is a Dog, the fi rst part, confronts the author with himself in a mirror of Super8 images interspersed with childhood memories, romantic encounters and separations. The 9 Tuesdays, the second part, tells of the absurdity of time passing, time that re-opens and cures childhood wounds, time that brings a rhythm to the impossibility of loving, time that provides the courage to continue and to go through mourning.

More fictional, the third part, COMBAT, asks the viewer: how can one let go in a world where one learns not to? Is it possible to reach the end of desire? From God is a Dog to COMBAT. From past to present, from Super8 to digital format, from documentary to fiction.
(Patrick Carpentier)
