LE BERCEAU DE CRISTAL

1976 / 70min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: PHILIPPE GARREL

CAST: NICO, DOMINIQUE SANDA, ANITA PALLENBERG, PHILIPPE GARREL

A score by Ash Ra Tempel provides atmosphere to this sometimes dreamy, sometimes ominously silent trancelike transmission featuring Dominique Sanda, Anita Pallenberg and Frédéric Pardo, whose canvases are meditatively presented in whole or in part for observation. “Snapshot of a discordant generation. The cradle? Art (Pardo’s painting, Nico’s poetry, the Langlois Museum). The crystal? The cold (Anita Pallenberg’s powder, the silence before suicide). Every life is a demolition process.”—Philippe Azoury

Le Berceau de Cristal screens as part of the series Philippe Garrel: Part 1.
