A risky misunderstanding. The three islands of Juan Antonio Bardem
On the centenary of Juan Antonio Bardem, an essential figure of our cinematographic memory, we review one of the most complex episodes of his career, sometimes labelled as irregular: that of La Isla Misteriosa (1973) and its tripartite result (a montage for the Spanish version, a second for the Italian and another for the one released in France). Trying to elucidate the motives and dissimilar results of the three montages allows us to question the authorial readings of Bardem, the most widely rehearsed to date, and to shed light on new perspectives on the work of this filmmaker.
