Sample text

They are bored with their parents and authority and capitalism … so, it’s a French film. Even the style – the lighting, etc. – is what you could call réalisme poétique (Carné, that sort of film).  And after that, you have a sort of prequel of what that Bergman will do later: a bitter endless domestic dispute. The woman is double-checking on the husband after the birth of their Interview with Arnaud Desplechin, Part I 13 kid. And so you have modern life, which is a film quite different from the two others, very dreary, very dark, very brutal, as you know, like Scenes from a Marriage [Bergman, 1973] or Passion of Anna [Bergman, 1969], that kind of dark, dismal film.

Truffaut’s cinema is a memory palace, a celluloid shrine. Picasso, Masked in the Filigree of Jules et Jim The walls of Truffaut’s films hold not just photographs but paintings that reflect off one another and produce a parallel trajectory the alert viewer can follow. The supreme example is Jules et Jim, a film that contains no less than thirteen paintings by Pablo 40 Martin Lefebvre Picasso: L’Etreinte dans la mansarde (1900), Famille d’acrobates avec singe (1905); Jeune Fille à la mandoline (1910), Etude pour Les Bateleurs – Jeune Fille avec chien (1905), Au Lapin Agile (1904–1905); Femme nue assise (1905); Compotier, verre, bouteille, fruits (also known as Nature morte verte; 1914); L’Italienne (1917); Les Deux Saltimbanques au café (1901); Pierrot (1918); L’Arlequin assis (1923); Les Amoureux (1923); Mère et enfant (1922).

The street may look fake behind them as they walk, because with so little money it has to be lit with a single very harsh lamp. Needing to open the lens, the shot looks like a rear projection. Although it’s all a real street, he shoots in a French way, so that saving on the cost of shooting becomes a sort of ethic. Now I can see what amazed him in Sacha Guitry. Curiously, one of the very last texts that he published in Cahiers du Cinéma has this photo of Guitry who truly represented that strong conception of mise-en-scène that Truffaut wanted to maintain.
