Locarno in Los Angeles 2018 - 3/4 (Opening Night)
3/4 (Three Quarters) - Opening Night
Ilian Metev, Bulgaria, Germany  2017  DCP  Color  82'   o.v. Bulgarian

3/4 follows a father with his son and daughter during their walk across the city. Their short age difference underlines the narrow distance between childhood and first responsibilities. The shooting style is opposite, compared to the recently predominant tracking shot filming the back of the head of silent actors in order to reveal the space ahead. Metev prefers preceding his characters and shows their stride and movement with a shot reverse shot that becomes the ideal tool to seize the different dynamics of language, in particular the free language of youth and its catchphrases, onomatopoeias, verses, repetitions and provocations. The external shots are flooded by the light of a strange and interrupted warm season; the internal shots are perfect frameworks. But what most of all moves us in 3/4 is its patient rhythm, the moderate austerity that portraits verbal and physical interactions with rare and decent precision, the mastery of a stubbornly bounded and refined repertoire that generates the essential gap to the wonder. Winner: Golden Leopard (Filmmakers of the Present)
