Belle Épine

Director: Rebecca Zlotowski
Cast: Léa Seydoux, Anaïs Demoustier, Agathe Schlenker
France, 80’, 2010, color
French with Turkish subtitles

Zlotowski’s Belle Épine is a coming of age story about a teenage girl dealing with the death of her mother and absentee father. The girl loses herself in antisocial behavior, turning away from her Jewish heritage personified by her supportive aunt and uncle, and drawn into the orbit of a wrong-side-of-the-tracks classmate and her biker friends, who gather for chaotic, sometimes lethal night-time motorcycle meets on the edge of town. The film won the prestigious Prix Louis Delluc and was nominated for a César Award for lead actress Léa Seydoux. The strikingly intimate portrait of a seventeen-year-old girl follows her transition from disaffected youth to premature adulthood with astute psychological observation.

The Search for Form

The Search for Form

A series of small and rather similar nudes Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu and Eren Eyüboğlu produced in the early 1930s almost resemble a ‘visual conversation’ that focus on a pictorial search. It is also possible to find the visual reflections of this earlier search in the synthesis Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu reached with his stylistic abstractions in the 1950s.
