The Camera in ‘A Bigger Splash’ Is a Barometer of Emotion

"The camera is a barometer or thermometer, an instrument checking the temperature of [the characters'] emotional status," says "A Bigger Splash" director Luca Guadagnino.

A Bigger Splash director Luca Guadagnino writes for MovieMaker Magazine about his intention behind his film, a remake of the classic 1969 French film La Piscine.

“I wanted to create a visual language that could, in a way, keep up with the f***ed-up anxieties of my characters,” he writes. “The camera is a barometer or thermometer, an instrument checking the temperature of their emotional status. Sometimes it’s frantic and sometimes it has a more relaxed paced, but it often has a piercing gaze that I wanted to achieve.”
