The Visitor

When a Gestapo officer takes Anna away for questioning, Freud despairs, whereupon a strange visitor appears who claims to be God. Radmehr rated it did not like it Sep 15, I Have Met Him. They were only interested in writing about the shows everyone wanted to see. The idea started to grow in me and I lived with it for several years. Whatever doubts may exist about the play itself, the production is excellent.

A popular contemporary French author and dramatist, his plays are schmitf and staged in more than 30 countries all over the world. Quotes from Le Visiteur. A very beautiful play with a gravity of its own that nevertheless affords plenty of laughs, because the mysterious character has such bewitching malice and guile and because the witticisms in the play come so naturally.

There was Visitsur and Mephistopheles. Anna wants him to agree, as does the American embassy, but he is unsure. So much the better for us, since we become the privileged witnesses of a duel of minds between an absorbed, tense Dr Freud, who uses reason alone to argue and this total stranger, who wields a devastating sense of humour.


It was the daily procession of crimes and injustice, but that evening, I wasn’t merely trying to listen and to understand the news, I was feeling it, bleeding with my body with the whole world.

But the surrounding landscape is stunning and the dialogue between Freud and his visitor is of the best, dealing with all the great scientist’s favourite themes and all the problems that haunted his research and discoveries, together with the metaphysical treatments that concern every one of us in our relationship with the world. Although written init actually taps into the kind of theatre that had long gone out of favour with the British audiences by virtue of being contemplative rather than strictly speaking entertaining.

With a strong cast and profound script, The Visitor rises to meet this standard. In Bulgarian, published by Lege Artis. Is it God who for the love of man has granted them a total but foolish freedom, or Freud who, out of sheer lucidity, has always tried visitfur convince people to become atheists? It is his performance more than anything else that gives this play its credibility. Who is this visitor? Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt’s The Visitor is remarkable both for the writing andfor the players’ performances.

Defiantly optimistic, he refuses to sign the papers which will let his family escape. Going deep inside myself, I found, not myself, but humanity. How can we still believe in God in a world where horror goes hand in hand with abomination, where bombs kill and where racial discrimination is more rife than ever before? It is a feast of ideas, as well visiteuur being a careful examination of what happens visiteuur ideas are no longer enough.

A lunatic escaped from an asylum, a mythomaniac, a joker or even a secret agent sent to compromise him? The play is still a success in every theatre where it is on. So nothing visiteue really proved.


It was no worse than the previous evening. His cries are seemingly answered by the appearance of emmanufl strange man, clad in tuxedo and top hat, his frivolous garb in stark contrast to the grim reality at play just outside the building. Schmitt’s Visiyeur in a tuxedo appears so powerless before the foolishness committed by His homo sapiens, that He deserves our total indulgence.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Mina rated it did not like it Dec 05, Jean Froissard is a Catholic writer and a journalist. To begin with, it was hard to get an audience and then, when people learnt it was free, the house started to fill up. Lw, the presence of Nazis and mention of Jewish persecution and death camps in a play with the tone of a boulevard comedy may strike some as trivializing the subject.

Le Visiteur — Wikipédia

Schmitt brings us Freud not as a psychoanalyst but as a clever and contrary emmankel, one minute defiant, the next doubting the whole of his life’s work: Against a background that recreates the atmosphere of Freud’s study in Vienna, Schmitt has mixed elements of fiction with true facts from the life of the father of psychoanalysis.

Schmitt tries to convince us by showing Him in flesh and blood. Both of visitur parents were physical education teachers.

That God created the world out of love hardly explains such things.
