Review of Un, deux, trois, crépuscule in Sense of cinema

“The sound de­si­gn by Oli­vier Cal­vert, and mu­sic of Charles Cot­vin, was stun­ning not on­ly for its consi­de­red dis­cre­tion, and the oc­ca­sio­nal vio­lence that punc­tua­ted it, but for being among the most as­su­red ap­pli­ca­tions of a spa­tial 5.1 mix that I’ve ever heard. Dufour-Laperrière’s film des­cribes the pos­si­bi­li­ties of a new va­rie­ty of ci­ne­ma­tic nar­ra­tive, al­beit one which ack­now­ledges fine art pre­cedent (like the fra­ming de­vice of the er­satz Cor­nell boxes), and em­ploys the po­ten­tial of new di­gi­tal tech­no­lo­gies to its full crea­tive ad­van­tage.”
