  1. FISCHER's rating of the film La salamandre

    Deuxième long métrage d'Alain Tanner, un film qui fit date dans l'évolution du cinéma suisse. Bulle Ogier et Jean-Luc Bideau sont, en outre, plutôt remarquables... www.cinefiches.com

  2. kartina obskura's rating of the film La salamandre

  3. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film La salamandre

    This one reminds me the adaptation of Peter Handke's books on screen, in the road movie genre. Really love how the three main lost characters finally develops a powerful and quite fatalist vision about consumption society. My type of film as I can refer closely to my own life experience and its wanderings.

  4. Daniel S.'s rating of the film La salamandre

    Geneva in b&w two years after the events of May 68 in France. Jean-Luc Godard was in the middle of his Maoïst period and the members of the Group 5 (5 young directors of the French speaking part of Switzerland) proposed their first movies then. This one earned an OCIC award in Berlin. As though it is a little bit verbose at times, The Salamander is nonetheless a must for those of us interested in Swiss cinema.
