Emergency Kisses

Les baisers de secours

Frankreich, 1989
Drama, Liebesfilm

Darum geht's

When a philandering film director refuses to cast his stage actress wife in a role largely based on her, the couple begins to wrestle with their conflicting philosophies on art and life.

Emergency Kisses Regie Philippe Garrel


The end of Emergency Kisses is probably my favourite of any Garrel picture, a scene that perfectly realizes his vision. . . . In one simple scene, absent any dialogue, Garrel visually conveys the vicissitudes of love and infidelity and the self-consciousness of role-playing that run through all his work. It’s a profoundly moving ending, and one that could only be realized by a master of the craft.

Here in this deeply personal film is the intimate lens that is characteristic of so much of Garrel’s work. His camera is a mirror that reflects and memorialises. Emergency Kisses is evidence of Garrel’s willingness to look at ‘them’ and also at himself, as he has done repeatedly and honestly throughout a 50-year career of subjective exploration.

In what’s been a remarkably autobiographical oeuvre, the metatheatrical layers in the likes of Emergency Kisses are dizzying… This is Garrel at perhaps his most indulgently navel gazing, but it’s a fascinating meditation on the divisions between cinema and life; it also augured the couple’s real-world split that would eventuate a few years later.
