The restoration of Jacques Rivette’s legendary magnum opus brings this long impossible-to-see masterpiece to the big screen.
“The cinephile’s holy grail.”
—Dennis Lim, The New York Times
“The can’t-miss repertory event of the fall calendar”
—The Village Voice
“A cornerstone in the history of modern cinema.”
Over eight episodes, a cast of French New Wave icons improvise a spellbinding tale involving two theater troupes rehearsing Aeschylus, a female con artist (Berto) who seduces her victims, and a deaf-mute (until he speaks) busker (Léaud) on a quest to uncover a mysterious secret society. As the characters’ paths crisscross and the film’s puzzle-box structure grows ever more elaborate, a portrait of post-May 1968 Paris and its dashed dreams emerges. The result is a cinematic experience unlike any other, in which, as Rivette himself put it: “the fiction swallows everything up and then self-destructs.”
