Sample text

One possible translation of the French title is Falling Bodies, another is Diving Bodies. The danger of drowning is strongly implied in the title. The title suggests violence, displacement, and impact. It could mean that for the cases that Chase works on, the force of the foreign objects plunged into the victims’ bodies displaces and extinguishes their life. The struggles in a violent world are to keep one’s body and soul floating, to rebound from the pressures, to live with the consequences of one’s acts.

Peck has stated that the film’s direct inspiration came from his childhood in Papa Doc’s Haiti. His eighth year was a happy one because he was surrounded by a large extended family, but it was also “the time of Duvalier’s first repression, so my memories are also of roadblocks, arrests, and assassinations” (SI 163). Peck recalls his mother driving him through the city late at night, still in his pajamas, as they searched everywhere for his father. While Peck remembers the “warmth and security” of being with his mother, he cannot forget the anxiety and terror of not finding his father (who had been arrested but was later released) (SI 163).
