Hold Me Tight

Sunday October 8
Sunday October 8
Director: Matthieu Amalric
2021 / 97min / DCP

“In Amalric’s sixth feature directorial endeavor—his most audacious to date—Krieps delivers yet another riveting performance as Clarisse, a mother on the run for reasons that aren’t immediately clear. Alternating between Clarisse’s adventures on the road and the perspective of her abandoned husband Marc (Arieh Worthalter) as he cares for their children at home, Hold Me Tight deliberately obscures the line between reality and illusion as it paints a poetic, provocative picture of a woman’s shattered mind. A contemporary tragedy, and a masterful, emotionally gripping exploration of guilt and grief.”—Series curator Adeline Monzier

“Maybe my favorite of all my movies. Its image and editing is pure poetry. It’s brave and unique. It lets the audience become the author, and does what few movies do: invites rather than tells you a story. It’s about love and family, fantasy and madness, grief and growth. And silence.”—Vicky Krieps
