The rope

Μυθοπλασία/Fiction, Η.Π.Α./USA, 1948, 80’, DCP, Έγχρ./Color, Mε ήχο/ Sound

Two young homosexuals strangle to death their classmate in a New York apartment. The rope is an experiment and a breach: “And I got this crazy idea to do it in a single shot. When I look back, I realize that it was quite nonsensical because I was breaking with my own theories of cutting and montage for the visual narration of a story”. For Truffaut, Hitchcock’s first color film actualizes every director’s dream: ”of linking all of a film’s components into a single continuous action”.
