‘Inspired by “Ma Mere” by Georges Bataille , and revisited by the
Pataphysics of Alfred Jarry , “Further and Particular” obeys it’s own logic. Dwoskin talks about “finding a certain familiarity with chaos”.
An old man remembers the troubled relationship he had with his mother, the erotic games, and the phantasms in which she managed to attract him. The main line gives but a small idea of the film, of its erotic style, ts choreographic dimension, its strange fragmentation. The film drifts along an ever renewed invention, intertwining lavish dances, mask games, musical comedy, parodies, permanent repression of the body offering itself as an object of desire to the viewer who is literally seduced.’
