Love Games (Liebesspiel)


Rental Format(s): 16mm

"LIEBESSPIEL has a classical simplicity unique among Fischinger's work, with a clear sense of phrasing, development and beautiful spatial construction which mark it as his most perfect transcreation in a visual format of the basic musical ideas of melody and harmonies as they might occur in a song or lyrical air. It is significant in this respect that his efforts here were apparently not tied down to a specific piece of music, but rather bent on re-creating in visual terms certain pure concepts best known otherwise through music.

"The action is frankly and simply erotic, in the way tantric mandalas are often sensuous in expressing the yin-yang, male/female duality principle. The reproductive conclusion is exquisitely beautiful in its balanced form." - Dr. William Moritz, Film Culture
