La naissance d'un nouveau cinéma: le cinéma des corps! Damn.
See Adrian Martin's instructive video: http://blogs.indiewire.com/pressplay/video-essay-sight-and-sound-film-poll-adrian-martin-on-philippe-garrels-lenfant-secret
"Garrel has succeeded in filming something we have never seen before: the faces of actors in silent films during those moments when the black intertitles, with their paltry, illuminated words, filled the screen." http://www.rouge.com.au/1/garrel.html
This is part of those poignant and highly emotional, introspective films by Garrel. This is only a matter of taste but I’m more convinced by the psychologically enigmatic « Le révélateur », the poetical elegies of « Le berceau de cristal » and « la cicatrice intérieure ». However an important document for everyone interested in Garrel and French (experimental) new wave.
