Film Notes

Dégustation maison won the Festival of Cabourg in 1977. e film, directed by Sophie Tatische , is very impressive and develops her own writing in shots and reverse shots and clearly gives importance to the editing over image. is is not surprising because, before becom- ing a director, Tatische was an editor. is symbiosis of directing and editing allowed for the creation of pure cinema. e spectacle is guaranteed by the correspondence of the shots, the sudden chang-es of pace and by the increasing points of attraction. Tatische makes cinema that can be thrilling at times. e lm uses medium-long shots which are continuously relocated into the foreground or with another medium image, but with- out ever letting the editing break up or taking away from the choice of the previous shots. It all seems to be constructed for magic, when the construction itself is not easy to understand.
