Pink Floyd The Wall is a film by Alan Parker came out in 1982, the film adaptation of the concept album "The Wall", released in 1979 by Pink Floyd. The film, the third phase of the project conceived by Roger Waters, is based on the album rather than vice versa, and it is in fact the "visual track."
The story allows at least three levels of interpretation:
- autobiographical one (the death of Roger's father in the war, Eric Fletcher Waters, the problems of school education in the period of the student riots)
- one of observation and social critique (the lack of communication in relationships, the almighty rockstar)
- one that represents the evolution of the madness of the protagonist, where you can see a reference to Syd Barrett, although the experiences of life and artistic bassist represent the true soul.
Initially, they were four to begin the implementation of the project: In addition to Waters, the cartoonist Gerald Scarfe, the director Michael Seresin and producer Alan Parker. Scarfe, will work with animated drawings of many sequences of the film, the same ones that were also projected on the wall.
The film was screened out of competition at the 35th Cannes Film Festival.
