Le Pont Du Nord (The North Bridge)

France | 1981 | Jacques Rivette

Le Pont Du Nord (The North Bridge)

This never-before-released-in-America film by French New Wave master Jacques Rivette is a more sinister companion piece to his celebrated trip down the rabbit hole Céline and Julie Go Boating. Like that peripatetic 1974 puzzler, this film focuses on two women, an ex-con and a motorcyclist (Bulle Ogier and her real-life daughter Pascale), who cross paths one day in Paris and, inside a stolen briefcase, discover evidence of a nefarious conspiracy. Possessing a map that turns the wintry city into an elaborate board game, they embark on a labyrinthine quest to unravel the plot via signs, codes, billboards, and other clues in plain sight. "Playfully profound…There are few artists better than Rivette at uncovering the magical in the everyday." -Time Out New York (2013).
