Transit Levantkade / The Ants R2 Nl (Dutch Subtitles) - Blank, Rosemarie
Releasedatum: 25 juli 2016
Stylised documentary portrait of the Amsterdam Levantkade a quay in Amsterdam's old doc area, and the 'urban nomands' who in the late eighties sought refuge in this no-man's-land now cleared. In the twenties Levantkade was a gateway for Eastern European emigrants on their way to South America. In the eighties Levantkade became a haven for drop-outs, for foreigners and the homeless people who lived here on a different planet until the police came to clear the area with wreckers. The film shows these 'urban indians' in documentary form, interspersed with archive material about immigrants dating from 1926.

The film traces the feelings of an woman living in a peasantís house in Italy. The woman tries to establish her daily rhythm. We see magnified pictures of her surroundings, particularly of insects. In one of here childhood memories an Alsatian dog licks a girlís heel between her legs. In a dream she stands naked in a pit which might be a grave. Some of the shots convey a sense of menace and introspection. Thanks to the measured performance by Marion van Wijk, superb lighting, black & white photography and well balanced editing, the Ants is a highly compelling and evocative film. (Alex de Ronde)
