Corps-Caméra : The Evocation of Touch in the Dardennes' La Promesse (1996)

From: L'Esprit Créateur
Volume 47, Number 3, Fall 2007
pp. 133-144 | 10.1353/esp.2007.0054

Their "haptic" cinema disrupts viewers' subjectivities and gives them a sensuous experience of other worlds, leading to an ever-shifting ethical bricolage.
