Ar, and roar

The Point of You - - ENTERTAINMENT /DIVERTISSEMENT -

TheGirl­with­theDragonTat­too… There’s no doubt about it— the ti­tle of this thriller, re­cently made into a movie by David Fincher, is at­ten­tion-grab­bing and dev­il­ishly catchy. The im­age it evokes of a leg­endary winged mon­ster per­ma­nently in­grained in the skin of a young woman is truly strik­ing, wouldn’t you agree? Pic­tur­ing her smooth, soft skin thus dec­o­rated by tat­too­ing, a tech­nique renowned for the pain it in­flicts, might at the very least in­duce feel­ings of am­biva­lence. Although this an­cient art has be­come com­mon­place in our cul­ture over re­cent years, it re­mains as­so­ci­ated with non­con­formist val­ues. And this makes it very tempt­ing for some peo­ple, par­tic­u­larly young adults. / TheGirl­with­theDragonTat­too… Pas de doute: le titre orig­i­nal du thriller de David Fincher in­ter­pelle et s’avère di­a­ble­ment ac­crocheur. L’évo­ca­tion de l’im­age de ce mythique mon­stre ailé, in­crusté durable­ment dans la peau d’une je­une femme, ne frappe-t-elle pas vive­ment l’es­prit? Se représen­ter un épi­derme lisse et doux orné d’un tel tatouage, tech­nique FRQQXH SRXU OD GRXOHXU TX’HOOH LQflLJH, SHXW GDQV WRXV OHV FDV provo­quer des sen­ti­ments am­biva­lents. Même si, dans nos cul­tures, cet art mil­lé­naire s’est un peu ba­nal­isé ces dernières an­nées, il reste as­so­cié à des valeurs an­ti­con­formistes. De quoi ten­ter en par­ti­c­ulier les je­unes adultes.
