Directed by Jacques Rivette | 1981

With Bulle Ogier, Pascale Ogier, Pierre Clementi, Jean-Francois Stevenin

"...underworld and wonderland merge in the open air; joyous whimsy blurs with justified worry; and Rivette risks exploring the scarifying powers of fantasy and paranoia with a panning, punning documentary eye"
—Time Out London

A puzzle, a hallucinatory cinephilic fever dream, and a spellbinding, through-the-looking-glass thriller as only French New Wave titan Rivette could make, Le Pont du Nord plays like the darker, conspiracy-theory-obsessed cousin of the director’s beloved Céline and Julie Go Boating. This tale of two women follows ex-con Marie (Bulle Ogier), who is just out of prison, and Baptiste (Bulle’s real-life daughter Pascale) for a surreal, labyrinthine odyssey through a wintry Paris, replete with mysterious clues, codes, traps, and spies.

In French with English subtitles
