THE MAN´S WOMAN AND OTHER STORIES
This film which can be interpreted as a symbolic fable of the relationship between men and women is divided into three episodes. In The Man’s Woman, the man wishes to erase the name tattooed on his wife’s arm, and in 100W Light Bulb the main character tries to have a conversation with a woman who wants to go to sleep. In The Room over the Tree, there is no explicit attempt for contact, but you can sense the allusion through the exchanged glances with the woman on the 2nd floor. It is interesting to find out that their desires are not fulfilled in the way they wish, but also in a way that knowing that the spaces in which the episodes are spread out, have an implication that explains their relationships. All three episodes actively use internal frames, and the empty spaces are more highlighted than the full frames to make a strong structure. Along with the metaphorical lines that remind you of a proverb, the method in which colors and light are used in moderation make a symbolization well associated with the director’s intentions of simplifying the image and text. In addition, the Robert Bresson type text description and repetitive reiteration of the image add to the maximized contrast of the two.
