Dreyfus, Roman Polanski, and the anti-Semitism

The film ‘J’accuse’, in Italy ‘The officer and the spy’, by Roman Polański, starred by Jean Dujardin and Louis Garrel, is based on the Dreyfus affair, and takes the title from the article that the writer Émile Zola wrote to defend the innocent defendant.
It is technically perfect, artistically admirable and allows us to reflect on how much anti-Semitism there has always been in Europe and in the world.
As will be recalled from scholastic reminiscences, the Jewish population has been the object of prejudice, discrimination and persecution in all periods of history; in ancient times, the Jews were frequently subjugated and deported, in later periods, aided by some imperial constitutions, accusations of deicide and prohibitions relating to entire working environments, they were often vilified and marginalized. Even earlier, therefore, to arrive at the Shoah and the most known atrocities of the twentieth century.
The present blogger remembers having even found an anti-Semitic fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm
Il film ‘J’accuse’, in Italia ‘L’ufficiale e la spia’, di Roman Polański,interpretato da Jean Dujardin e Louis Garrel, si basa sul caso Dreyfus e mutua il titolo originale dall’articolo che lo scrittore Émile Zola scrisse per difendere l’innocente imputato.
È tecnicamente perfetto, artisticamente mirabile e consente di riflettere su quanto antisemitismo ci sia sempre stato in Europa e nel mondo.
Come si ricorderà dalle reminiscenze scolastiche, la popolazione ebraica è stata oggetto di pregiudizi, discriminazioni e persecuzioni in tutte le epoche della storia; nell’antichità, gli Ebrei erano di frequente sottomessi e deportati, nelle epoche successive, complici alcune costituzioni imperiali, accuse di deicidio e divieti relativi a interi ambiti lavorativi, sono stati spesso vilipesi ed emarginati. Ancor prima, dunque, d’arrivare alla Shoah e alle  piú conosciute atrocità del Novecento.
Chi scrive ricorda d’avere addirittura trovato una fiaba antisemita nella raccolta dei fratelli Grimm

Monuments Men

 The unique defect of ‘Monuments Men’ is that it could be longer.

 In just 118 minutes the spectator has a wonderful history essay,

 art and shades of the human soul.

 Everyone should watch it.

 Thank you so much for such a wonderful movie, Clooney.

 And many thanks you too, Matt Damon and Jean Dujardin (merci? Wink).

 And all the others.
