Ray & Liz

Richard Billingham, UK, 2018o

vBack

On the outskirts of Birmingham and the margins of society the Billingham family perform extreme rituals and break cultural taboos as they muddle through a life decided by factors beyond their control. At times shocking and laced with an unsettling humour, three-interlinking episodes unfold as a powerful evocation of the artist’s personal experience of growing up in a Black Country council flat.

Ein Alptraum-Paar sind Ray und Liz, in Lethargie und Alkoholismus gefangen, unfähig, sich um ihre beiden Kinder zu kümmern. Der britische Künstler Richard Billingham breitet in seinem großartigen Spielfilmdebüt die Erinnerungen an seine eigene Kindheit aus, in einer dysfunktionalen Familie in einer Sozialwohnung in Birmingham - ohne jede Sentimentalität, aber in Bildern, die sorgsam arrangiert ihre eigene Geschichte erzählen.

Susan Vahabzadeh

Billingham schildert alltägliche Episoden aus seiner Kindheit und findet dabei Bilder von erlesener Hässlichkeit. Der Film ist voller Empathie, aber frei von Romantisierung. Witzig, aber nichts für schwache Nerven.

Gregor Schenker

Il suffit d’une chanson grésillant dans un transistor reprise en murmures par le vieil alcoolique pour déchirer ce rideau naturaliste et rappeler, tout au bout de cette rengaine d’existences mortes nées, que Ray et Liz est aussi et surtout, peut-être, un grand film d’amour fou.

Vincent Malausa

Instantanés d’une enfance dans le chaos des années Thatcher, Ray & Liz est un portfolio déglingué et formidablement émouvant d’un outre-monde qui se passe bien des sentiments, d’une zone grise du monde trop longtemps refoulée et expulsée par son réalisateur.
