SCR: Patrick Carpentier, Belgium, 2006, video, subtitled, 56 min.
In some love relationships, there is no prize, no winner, no pride. Patrick Carpentier’s COMBAT, the completion of a three-part filmed diary called “The Irregularity of the Tearing,” questions intimacy by exploring desire and reason. In a violent love affair, does one inflict pain on another or on oneself? Is it possible to reach the end of desire? Can one let go in a world where we are taught not to let ourselves be pushed around? Carpentier narrates a disturbing, sadomasochistic love story involving two young men. In an unexpected encounter that merges violence with tenderness, the narrator rediscovers the extent of his desire. A dissection of pain and the fear of abandonment, COMBAT won the Teddy Jury Award in the 2006 Berlin Film Festival “for its exceptional artistic quality and for its honest depiction of unsettling desire.” – JPK ..
