Runner's Catharsis - Barcelona Miniguide

Runner's Catharsis - Barcelona Miniguide

  1. I love scenes with running; that moment of adrenaline or liberation is often the best part of the film.

    Like when Truffaut’s Catherine runs with Jules (et) Jim, before they become lovers, or the nine minutes of Godard’s Bande à part spent running through the Louvre. In Fellini’s 8 ½, when the young Guido has to escape the priests after they find out he saw La Saraghina – the prostitute who lives by the sea – dancing. In Carax’s Mauvais sang, when Alex suffers, runs and dances while David Bowie’s Modern Love plays on the radio. Or Bowie’s German teen admirer in Edel’s Christiane F. who runs in heels and robs a shopping center with her friends. There is a sweating Cary Grant, as he is chased by an aircraft in Hitchcock’s North by Northwest. And Lola, who runs as she repeatedly shows us round a 90s Berlin in Tykwer’s Run Lola Run.

    But my favorites are also some of the best endings in cinema: the moment Antoine Doinel reaches the sea in Truffaut’s The 400 Blows, or Benjamin Braddock’s getaway with the just married daughter of Mrs. Robinson in Nichols’ The Graduate.
