L'espace dans les films de Wim Wenders

Abstract : Space is no longer pushed back to the background in the benefit of history, of the play of actors and of action. It becomes a main actor. Wenders work proves this evolution. Indeed, the film-maker's vision of the world comes from space in which he builds up his own universe. Space lies at the core of Wenders narrative and enunciatively works. After having appealed to the most recent and elaborated theories, we build up a strict analysis about space in Wenders work. We support that space is an open, extendable and dynamic form, which is constantly in a shifting movement. Therefore, the thesis is made up of three parts: the first part deals with the film-space - a movement of a boundless expansion-. The second part focuses on the dynamisms of the narrative dimension - the trail round form appeases the desire of wandering and the third part deeply stresses the enunciation and the space of meaning. In this case, it is a matter of the perceptive dimension ("iconic" and sound effects), the cognitive dimension (the complexity of the points of view) and the aesthetic dimension. Wenders contributes to the renewal of the cinematographic language when he deals with space. Thus, he appears to be a pioneer and a visionary regarding his conception, his treatment and his elaboration of space.
