Les hautes solitudes

Directed by Philippe Garrel
France, 1974
  • Silent
  • No subtitles


In silence and black white, the focus is on a sole visage, that of a fallen 40-year-old star, Jean Seberg fifteen years after Breathless, struggling with alcohol, fear, loneliness, chemical dependence and dementia.

Our take

Described by Garrel himself as “a film made out of the outtakes of a film that never existed,” this is a silent, transfixing portrait shot on elegiac black and white recalling Andy Warhol’s famed screen tests. Brace yourself for a prophetic, utterly poignant scene foreshadowing Jean Seberg’s death.
