Hypnotic Incantations: A Marguerite Duras Focus


Each night in Paris, hundreds of men and women anonymously use telephone lines that date from the German Occupation and are no longer listed to talk to each other, to love each other. These people, shipwrecked lovers, are dying to love, to escape the abyss of solitude.

Our take

Marguerite Duras further subverts and reimagines cinematic form with her fervid letter to anonymous love and desire. A film is in the making while another unravels: two voices (Duras and Benoît Jacquot), lost in contemporary solitude, resonate while a camera wanders the empty streets of Paris.
