France | 1979 | Philippe Garrel
Anne Wiazemsky (Au Hasard Balthazar) and another of Bresson’s “models” (as opposed to “actors”), Henri de Maublanc of The Devil, Probably, play an impoverished Parisian couple (he’s a filmmaker, she’s a single mom) who fall in love and then fall to pieces, descending into drug addiction and mutually-enforced self-destruction. Inspired by the director’s former relationship with the singer Nico, this transitional film in Philippe Garrel’s career pivots from his previous experimental work into narrative. “A quietly devastating film of almost unbearable alternations between tenderness and the harshest truths.” –Film Comment. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 92 min.
