I haven't wanted any god or salvation or everlasting existence. i'm my very own god; I offer my very own angels and demons. I exist on a stony seashore, which lowers itself in waves towards a protecting ocean. A puppy barks; a toddler cries; the day sinks and turns into evening. you could by no means scare me. No individual might be in a position to scare me ever back. i've got a prayer that I repeat to myself in absolute stillness: could a wind come to fire up the sea and the stifling twilight. may possibly a chook come from the water available in the market and explode the silence with its name. Twelve years later Sebastian is scared out of his brain. We’ll speak about bit later. I DON’T HAVE a lot to assert approximately The bare evening (Sawdust and Tinsel). one can insist that the movie is a pandemonium — yet a well-organized pandemonium. I wrote it in a small resort on Mosebacke sq., within the similar development the place the South Theater is positioned. The room was once slender, with a breathtaking view of the town and the bay. A winding mystery staircase hooked up the theater with the resort. within the evenings i may listen tune from the revue being played under. At evening, the actors and their unusual visitors partied within the hotel’s eating room. during this surroundings, Sawdust and Tinsel used to be born in lower than 3 weeks. I keep in mind that the demons, the demons of retrospective jealousy, have been bridled and made to drag a loaded wagon; they have been pressured into effective task. I wrote the movie instantly via from commencing to finish, with out preventing to imagine or upload or fill in. The drama had its beginning in a dream. I depicted the dream within the flashback approximately Frost and Alma. It’s particularly effortless to interpret. many years prior I were head over heels in love. Pretending expert curiosity, I enticed my liked to inform me intimately approximately her multifaceted erotic reports. The atypical pleasure of a clean jealousy over her long-past activities scratched and tore at my innards and my genitals. the main primitive rituals of disgrace turned an everlasting alloy in my jealousy. Jealousy grew to become one of those dynamite that almost exploded out of me, its writer. to specific it in musical phrases, you could say that the most topic is the episode with Frost and Alma. There follows, inside of an undivided time-frame, a couple of thematic diversifications of erotics and humiliation in ever-changing mixtures. Sawdust and Tinsel is comparatively sincere and shamelessly own. Albert Johansson, the circus proprietor, loves either Anne and his chaotic existence within the circus. And but, he's strongly drawn towards the bourgeois defense he had in existence along with his now-abandoned spouse. to place it in short: he's a jogging chaos of conflicting feelings. the truth that Åke Gronberg performed Albert, and that the half used to be expressly written for him, has not anything to do with any impact from Dupont’s movie style with Emil Jannings. It’s a lot easier than that: if a scrawny director goals for a self-portrait, in fact he chooses a fats actor to play himself. Åke Grönberg was once before everything a comedy actor with an, allegedly, affable chubbiness. As Albert, he liberated different forces inside of himself.
