CÚline et Julie Vont en Bateau
France | 1974 | Jacques Rivette
Here’s a new 35mm color print of an epic Jacques Rivette masterpiece that David Thomson has called“the most innovative film since Citizen Kane.” It’s a surreal fantasy in which two young Parisian women, a nightclub magician and a librarian, trade identities, enter a mysterious mansion, interact with the house’s real or imaginary inhabitants, and get caught up in a Gothic murder melodrama that’s forever unfolding there. Inspired by two Henry James stories, this dreamy, whimsical, playful work celebrates fiction, cinema, and imagination. It evokes Borges, Proust, Kafka, Cocteau, Hitchcock, and Lewis Carroll—and predicts Lynch’s Mulholland Dr. “Five stars (highest rating)…Manages to explore heady concepts without once feeling labored.” –Time Out New York. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles.
