Synopsis

In the words of Bernadette Lafont, who stars in the film with Laurent Terzieff, “a couple and their child flee in the face of an unknown but still considerable menace… In a desolate landscape, full of humidity and humiliation, we see the weakest of beings stage his revolt: a child.”

Our take

In astonishingly beautiful B&W, Philippe Garrel’s silent experimental narrative film was made in his 20s with the ferocious Zanzibar art collective. Shot near military camps in Germany to create a feeling of oppression, it is a primal response to the events of May ’68 as they were still unfolding.
