Le pont du Nord

Directed by Jacques Rivette
France, 1981
Comedy, Fantasy
  • French
  • English


Marie gets out of prison – and can no longer stand to live between four walls. Baptiste comes from somewhere else, or so she says, and intends to live by her own rules. They seem to be united by some indefinable bond, and soon they set off on a bizarre quest that neither can understand.

Our take

Enter the world of Jacques Rivette! In Le Pont du Nord, the New Wave critic-turned-filmmaker literally turns Paris into a game board, a treasure hunt ending in a nasty surprise. Is it real or imagined? A story of friendship? A paranoid conspiracy? Decide for yourself. Paris belongs to us.
