From informal patterns to the full moon, Moonlight covers a spectrum that goes from geometrical abstraction to the plentiful forms of life. The grids, which recall the shape of some oriental windows, give rhythm to the composition, allowing a direct contact with the eyes of the represented woman.
Moonlight is traditionally the backdrop of secret and romantic encounters, where mystery and desire rule. As a brilliant filmmaker, Britta Dietsche creates sophisticated atmospheres, drawing the spectator into a narrative pattern whose beginning and end remain uncertain. Who is the beautiful woman staring in front of her? Is she looking at us? The viewer acquires with Moonlight a profound awareness of the fictional potential of visual arts, a place of illusions and intimate projections.
