LES BAISERS DES SECOURS
DIRECTOR: PHILIPPE GARREL
CAST: BRIGITTE SY, PHILIPPE GARREL, LOUIS GARREL, ANéMONE
A family movie in the purest sense, Garrel here plays a filmmaker who, in putting together his latest film, comes into conflict with his wife after he refuses to cast her as the wife in a retelling of their own love story, starring himself. With Garrel’s wife, Brigitte Sy and their young child Louis Garrel, and Garrel’s father Maurice. “Be it at dawn, or at dusk, in a surreptitious silence, someone’s hand cranks a handle without anybody around calling for ‘Action!’. The air is cold. Through his wiry mop of hair, the man looks at a woman he loves. Together they shiver. This shiver: the tingling of the cinema. Amitiés, Leos Carax”
Les Baisers des secours screens as part of the series Philippe Garrel: Part 1.
