Jacques Rivette France, 2009

Mouad Lemoudden's rating of the film Around a Small Mountain

the first film i've seen from director Jacques Rivette. the film centers around a traveling circus playing in mountain villages to very small audiences. the film explore the characters' grief, search, regret and redemption; employing a mixture of drama, whimsical comedy and abstract romance.. i get all that. but unfortunately it didn't speak to me; could be because i'm not accustomed to Rivette's style
