Histoire de Marie et Julien

Jacques Rivette France, 2003

Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Story of Marie and Julien

At first, jarring. But then it slowly becomes a beautiful statement about encountering the past and the intimacy of relationships. It is ambitious and risky and I don't think the film could have worked had it not been directed by Jacques Rivette, and the result is brilliant.
