1967 / 74min / DCP

DIRECTOR: PHILIPPE GARREL

CAST: ZOUZOU, DIDIER LéON, NICOLE LAGUIGNER, MAURICE GARREL

Garrel’s first full-length feature, frequently translated literally as “Marie for Memory,” but perhaps more accurately as “Remember Marie” or “Marie for the record,” is “An explicitly political work about innocence thwarted by parental and state control that trades in the iconography of the Holy Trinity,” per Kent Jones, and an international success, winning first prize at the Festival of Young Cinema in Hyères (and even distributed in the US by Universal Pictures 16mm division). “The first total revolution in cinema since the advent of Jean-Luc Godard. No more literature here. No other writing than that of the camera.”—Claude Mauriac
