LE PONT DU NORD

1981 / 129min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: JACQUES RIVETTE

CAST: BULLE OGIER, PASCALE OGIER, PIERRE CLEMENTI

Mother-daughter duo Bulle and Pascale Ogier co-wrote (with Rivette and Suzanne Schiffman) and co-star as two women freshly sprung from jail who set out to explore Paris, a city that seems to be populated entirely by men named Max, with the help of a map that renders the metropolis as a vast gaming board. As ever with the playful Rivette, the atmosphere of paranoia is thick, and along the way the women catch glimpses of a vast conspiratorial machinery in motion. Shot entirely out-of-doors by the great William Lubtchansky and Caroline Champantier.
