Dossier Beckermann: My Super Sweet Thirteen (Zorros Bar Mizwa)

Nachdem sich Ruth Beckermann in ihrem filmischen Oeuvre intensiv mit Veränderungen im Wiener Stadtbild und der Wiener Gesellschaft auseinandergesetzt hat – ein Blick zurück, der immer auch die Gegenwart im Auge hatte –, ist die Gewichtung in Zorros Bar Mizwa eine andere. Der Film fragt nicht (explizit) nach der Vergangenheit, interessiert sich kaum für Anekdoten und (Lebens-)Geschichten, wie es für frühere Filme von Beckermann typisch war (allen voran dem großen Interviewporträt Wien retour, das eine oral history des Jüdischen und Roten Wiens der Zwischenkriegszeit aufzeichnet), stattdessen wagt Beckermann eine Bestandsaufnahme der Gegenwart, die sich weniger an vergangenen, denn an zukünftigen Entwicklungen orientiert. Der Film begleitet drei Jungen und ein Mädchen auf dem Weg zu ihrer Bar Mizwa bzw. Bat Mizwa, dem Übergang ins religiöse Erwachsenenleben im Judentum. Dieses Ereignis wird durch ein Zeremoniell im örtlichen Gotteshaus und einer anschließenden Feier mit Familie, Freunden und der Gemeinde zelebriert.

Zorros Bar Mizwa ist ein Film über jüdisches Brauchtum und ein Blick ins Innere der jüdischen Gemeinde Wiens. Es handelt sich bei diesem Blick jedoch keineswegs um ein nostalgisches Zurückerinnern an eine Zeit als die Ausübung jüdischer Religion hierzulande noch weniger exotisch wirkte, sondern um die Befragung einer neuen Generation, die an ihrer Religion festhält und sie für ihre Bedürfnisse adaptiert. Während die Festlichkeiten bei Moishy streng orthodox abgewickelt werden, interpretiert sie Sharon sehr viel freier und lädt zu einer großen „Zorro“-Themenparty – seine Familie, so die Mutter, sei immerhin sephardischer Herkunft, wodurch eine spanische Ausrichtung der Feier gerechtfertigt sei. Der Film lässt in der Konfrontation dieser unterschiedlichen Auslegungen die Frage offen, wie sich die strenge Orthodoxie, die als Reaktion auf die Geschichte des Judentums im 20. Jahrhundert gewertet werden kann, zur Säkularisierung religiöser Praktiken, wie sie für westeuropäische Gesellschaften typisch ist, verhält. Zumal die unmittelbare geographische und kulturelle Umwelt den säkularen Tendenzen, die den Spektakelwert über religiöse Besinnlichkeit stellen, keine ähnlich ausgeprägte orthodoxe Gegenposition entgegenzusetzen hat. In der sozialen Stellung und ethnischen Herkunft unterscheiden sich die vier Protagonisten ebenfalls: Tom ist Sohn einer israelischen Mutter und eines österreichischen Vaters, Sharons Familie stammt aus Georgien, Sophie wächst in einem bilingualen Haushalt auf. Wohl jede der vier Familien wäre in der Lage Stoff für einen Film wie Die papierene Brücke zu liefern. Auch Zorros Bar Mizwa bleibt letztlich nicht unbehelligt von den Sedimentschichten der Vergangenheit, wenngleich Beckermann zu selten, auf das Leben außerhalb der soziokulturellen Blase verweist, in der es sich der Film bequem gemacht hat.

Zorros Bar Mizwa von Ruth Beckermann

Zorros Bar Mizwa ist keine reine Milieustudie oder Reportage über lebendiges jüdisches Brauchtum in Österreich. Neben den vier Kindern steht noch eine weitere Figur im Zentrum des Films. André Wanne ist auf das Filmen von Hochzeiten, Bar Mizwas und anderen jüdischen Feierlichkeiten spezialisiert. Er war Ausgangspunkt für Beckermanns Recherchen zum Film und über seine Arbeit nähert sie sich den Familien. Neben dem Festhalten der Ereignisse zu Erinnerungszwecken fertigt André auf Anfrage auch kleine spielfilmartige Clips an, in denen die Feiernden sich durch eine Art Rahmenerzählung präsentieren. Für Tom fertigt André einen Film über Wien für seine israelischen Verwandten an, mit Sharon produziert er einen Zorro-Imagefilm mit dem Jungen in der Hauptrolle. Beckermann interessiert sich neben der religiösen Praxis zu gleichen Teilen für ihre Medialisierung. Andrés Filmchen und deren Entstehungsprozess stehen gleichberechtigt neben den Vorbereitungen für die vier Feste. Er dient Beckermann zudem als wichtiger Gesprächspartner, den kaum ein anderer hat einen besseren Überblick über die unterschiedlichen Ausprägungen des Judaismus in Wien und kommt deren unterschiedlichen Interpretationen religiösen Lebens näher. Was er nicht imstande ist zu leisten, ist eine Reflexion seiner eigenen Praxis des Bilderschaffens. Diese Aufgabe nimmt ihm Beckermann kurzerhand ab: ein nicht zu unterschätzender Aspekt von Zorros Bar Mizwa ist die Offenlegung und Kritik an Produktion und Konsum zeitgenössischer Bildmedien.

Beckermann beschränkt sich dabei auf eine amüsierte Zurschaustellung von Andrés eher unbeholfenen Versuchen als Spielfilmregisseur und der Einbindung seiner Clips in den Film, die wohl für eine dramaturgische Auflockerung sorgen sollen, aber nicht viel mehr als peinlich-berührtes Fremdschämen hervorrufen. Man wünscht sich eine Diskussion ikonoklastischer Tendenzen in den abrahamitischen Religionen oder eine Thematisierung der damals in den Kinderschuhen steckenden sozialen Medien, die in den Folgejahren zu einer wahren Bilderflut an Selbst- und Fremddokumentationen des Alltagslebens führen sollte. Auf all das verzichtet Beckermann zugunsten einer erzählerischen Leichtigkeit, die sich mit aller Kraft gegen die gewaltigen Schatten der (jüdischen) Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts stemmt. Zorros Bar Mizwa ist letztendlich der Versuch Judentum im 21. Jahrhundert zu denken, zu leben und zu dokumentieren. Dementsprechend ist Zorros Bar Mizwa ein schwieriger Film, der sich womöglich doch nicht so einfach einfach ins Gesamtwerk Beckermanns einordnen lässt, wie der erste Absatz das vermuten lässt.
