The Fire Within

Le feu follet

Instrueret af Louis Malle
Frankrig, 1963


Maurice Ronet, in an implosive, haunted performance, plays Alain Leroy, a self-destructive writer who resolves to kill himself and spends the next twenty-four hours trying to reconnect with a host of wayward friends. The Fire Within is one of Louis Malle’s darkest and most personal films.

Malle’s film is much more an evocation of the feeling of hopeless dismay than a documentary recreation of its realities. Things flow much more abstrusely, and the narrative often seems to be operating just outside the functional limits of reality; at its most extreme it feels like the dream of a dying man, his consciousness floating off into the ether, reaching back down to the earth he’s leaving behind.

When all is said and done, and all the cultural cross-references have been endlessly sifted, The Fire Within remains a very trivial film by a very presumptuous director. Malle’s self-pity here is even more boring than Fellini’s in 8 1/2 and his personal confession equally unsolicited.
