Fiction enables to digest glimpse of reality, before recording it. More then the art of telling, the art of observing has to be considered. Jacques Tati used to say that the first thing that should be taught at school is observation. Observation as a key for fiction.
For Michel Chion, “What does vision means to Tati? Distance. It is a magical phenomenon that creates space between human being. Vision is the distance between bodies. When Tati shoots in close-up, he does so not only to excite our sense of sight, but especially our sense of smell, and our intuition. What is sound? The absence of well-defined spaces necessitates sounds that keep what is shown at a distance. Sound, too, can be used to lift a detail to the foreground.”
A wide angle shot becomes a close-up in My uncle. Arpel’s house is a face (with windows for eyes), a face observing a part of the screen (where the hero, Mr Hulot, is hiding).
