Créer ensemble : l'apport des collaborateurs de création à l'oeuvre de Manoel de Oliveira

Abstract : A film is a collaboration work that feeds on the different sensibilities of the professionals who make it and contribute, more or less significantly, to its author. This study focuses on the key moment of every work of art, its creation. The study of the poetics of film – the making of film – allows for a more profound understanding of the aesthetic challenges involved. Specifically addressing the collaborative relationships of Portuguese filmmaker Manoel de Oliveira, involves inquiring how the ideological, personal and professional relationships the filmaker has with his collaborators determines his concepts of image, editing, his choice of actors and the process of adapting a literary work. The chosen professionals are Portuguese actor Luis Miguel Cintra, French editor Valerie Loiseleux, Swiss Cinematographer Renato Berta and Portuguese novelist Agustina Bessa-Luis. By analyzing these bilateral relationships, this study questions how the presence of the collaborators influences the concept of Oliveira’s scene setting, as well as how being a privileged interlocutor of the Portuguese filmmaker influences the careers of these collaborators. Without calling the author’s work into question, we believe in collaborative cinema, a cinema that says « us » instead of « me ». A cinema where the collaborator is not only a witness to the making of films, but also a sensitive surface and an active presence put to the test in the creation process which he integrates and integrates him.
