5. Tous les matins du monde (Fr 91) - Rewatch

Great to revisit an old friend - meditation on what it means to be a real musician.

The only piece of Marin Marais I was previously famliar with was his Tableau of a Gallbladder Operation:

FTV:28: La maison des filles perdues (1974) 6

Image

"The House of Lost Dolls."

Whilst Jess Franco was not involved in the film,(despite online listings,Franco is not listed in the on-screen credits) the screenplay by co-writer/(with Marius Lesoeur-whose use of the alias A.L. Mariaux is what caused the mix-up,due to Franco using a similar alias) director Pierre Chevalier wears similar psychotronic clothes to Jess, thanks to a long flashback unveiling the women being shipped out as WIP-style sex slaves to a house in the wilderness. Mashing footage shot with “borrowed” footage from Agente Sigma 3 - Missione Goldwather (1967) and backed by a lounge Jazz score from Jess Franco’s regular composer Daniel White, director Chevalier & cinematographer Gerard Brisseau whip up lashings of sleaze from the fittie “Lost Dolls” being used by clients, and hilariously badly staged fight scenes where punches hit thin air,in the house of lost dolls.

Gérard Depardieu is fine in the title role here, playing a man torn between being proud and critical of the decadent celebrations he is coordinating. The real star here though is the Academy Award nominated and César Award winning opulent set design, all of which is exquisitely photographed with an extensive variety of extreme high and low camera angles, fish eye lenses and oddball angles, the mix of which accentuates the excesses at hand. Amidst all this, the filmmakers fail to make the central romance (and lovers) particularly interesting though.

FTV:29:Boudu Saved from Drowning (1932) 9.

“Expectation is an indispensable seasoning for the dreariness of useful chores.”

Image

Following Boudu to his drowning attempt, co-writer (with Albert Valentin)/directing auteur Jean Renoir pre-dates the French New Wave by decades with long, documentary-style tracking shots of Boudu walking down streets clearly filled with real people (some of whom even look the camera.) Welcoming Boudu into the family home, Renoir uses the clash of class between Boudu and the Lestingois’s to give the farce sight-gags an anarchic atmosphere from Boudu wheeling out to each corner of the house and doing inappropriate jokes.

Rubbing up against Boudu, Renoir stylishly gazes into the Lestingois’s lives with elegant long-shots gazing out of windows to conversations taking place in other rooms,and for the final, Renoir swims towards poetic stylisation which in crawling panning shots sends Boudu sailing as a free spirit. Adapting Rene Fauchois’s play, (who at first wanted to disown it,but later approved of the final result) Renoir greets Boudu with a merry satirical bite,from the bourgeoisie Lestingois family attempting to get Boudu to conform to their rules of the game over the image he should present to the outside world. Saving him from drowning, Renoir wonderfully grates down on the Lestingois’s warmth towards Boudu, until the mere mention of him makes them twitch with memories of his unkempt attitude. Living a long time in a kind of bohemian house in Noisy-le-Grand, near Paris, Michel Simon gives an astonishing turn as Boudu, whose humour Simon keeps as free-flowing by pushing Boudu’s eccentrics right up against the screen,as Boudu finds himself saved from drowning.

A pretty great trio of shorts. Dans le noir is Godard in more contemplative than playful mode with ironically beautiful music and overlapping audio as his film examines the importance of a person's final few minutes before death. The Red Balloon is something that I had somehow avoided for years but which I really liked - very cleverly filmed so that it appears that the balloons have minds of their own, similar to how a very young child's conception of a balloon must be. Entr'acte was, however, probably my favourite of this bunch and I cannot even begin to describe it. The plot is minimal and what exists does not quite make sense, but it is very much alive as a motion picture, and feels extremely energetic even during the slow motion bits.

And that's it for me. Thanks for hosting, Coryn!

I have to say this was my least favorite of the trilogy, but I still loved this film. The use of red throughout was obviously wonderful, though it was a bit more jarring than blue. I also loved the end and the way the films were tied together. Really glad I finally got around to this trilogy.

French Fried FlicksShow

1. Loin du Vietnam / Far From Vietnam (Jean-Luc Godard/Joris Ivens/William Klein/Claude Lelouch/Chis Marker/Alain Resnais/Agnès Varda, 1967)
2. La musica / The Music (Marguerite Duras/Paul Seban, 1967)
3. Au revoir les enfants / Goodbye Children (Louis Malle, 1987)
4. Détruire dit-elle / Destroy, She Said (Marguerite Duras, 1969)
5. L'adolescente / An Adolescent Girl (Jeanne Moreau, 1979)
6. Jaune le soleil / Yellow the Sun (Marguerite Duras, 1971)
7. Nathalie Granger (Marguerite Duras, 1972) (re-watch)
8. La chienne / The Bitch (Jean Renoir, 1931)
9. La nuit du carrefour / Night at the Crossroads (Jean Renoir, 1932)

More crime from Renoir, in the form of the very first adaptation of Georges Simenon's Maigret character, made the year after the novel of the same name was published and starring the director's brother Pierre (in his first sound film) as the famous police detective. Here we have a rather complex plot involving a murder at the titular crossroads, where there are only a garage and a couple of houses. Just a few people, and everyone's a suspect, though the initial evidence seems to point to a Swedish immigrant with a mysterious, seductive, and seemingly perpetually drugged wife - an extraordinary performance by the very obscure Winna Winnifried. Eventually of course we find it's not that simple, there's another murder and an attempt on Maigret, and - it's not much of a spoiler - the detective eventually figures things out. What makes this special is the exceptional location work and photography, the night shooting and car chases have a real zing to them beyond what we usually find in this period, and Winnifried's like-nobody-else, sensual presence. I liked this more than La chienne, maybe more than Boudu though I'd need to see that again; certainly one of Renoir's best early works.

10. Le vieux fusil / The Old Gun (Robert Enrico, 1975)

More a revenge film that happens to be set in WWII involving Nazis than a "war film" per se, this is not a BAD film by any stretch of the imagination but not really a good one either; pretty shallow and lacking in characters apart from Philippe Noiret's doctor, who really isn't that interesting. I think the flashbacks are mostly there to give a reason for Romy Schneider to get a high billing, frankly - i.e. to generate box office for what is really a pretty thin and ordinary work. This won the Cesar? I guess that award isn't any more meaningful than the Oscar. Nice use of the castle/town locations, and Noiret isn't as hammy as he could often be - though perhaps here we could have used more emotion, particularly in the later scenes - but that's about it.

11. India Song (Marguerite Duras, 1975) (re-watch)

First seen at Facets Multimeda in Chicago, September 1995 in a Duras retrospective - they did most of her films, as well as several that she had just written, but I only managed a few of them. This one I watched twice in a row - one of the very few times I've ever done that, in the cinema or at home - in part because I was tired and dozed a bit during the first viewing, and in part because of inadequate subtitles, and other difficulties in viewing and appreciating this thorny masterpiece. And masterpiece it still seems to me, 23 1/2 years later and with a lot more "difficult" cinema under my belt. All of Duras is challenging, this one perhaps no more or less so than the others, but few of her films offer such a beautifully put together melding of sound and image - a soundtrack of various voices that seem mostly to be commenting on the action slightly before it happens, sometimes reading the dialogues that the principal characters - acted by Delphine Seyrig and Michael Lonsdale among others - might be saying; music and sound effects that are likewise often off-putting and challenging what we see on screen rather than correlating precisely to it - and images of a fading, declining and dissolute, bored European aristocracy in India, in the days just before World War II. It's often mockingly said that this is a boring film about boring people and boring lives and I suppose that's true, but I find the images beautiful enough, and the melancholy powerful enough - and sometimes it's something more than melancholy, as Lonsdale's lasting screams that go on for several minutes near the end, the screams of a man who knows he will never have what he wants, reminds me achingly of Henry James' The Beast in the Jungle, the most powerful testament to wasted life I know. This doesn't perhaps have the emotional pull of James but in it's depiction of an ennui that traffics with guilt, racism, and repression, it's pretty potent all the same.

12. Cléo de 5 à 7 / Cleo from 5 to 7 (Agnès Varda, 1962) (re-watch)

Image

RIP, Mother of the New Wave. I saw this first around - 2005/6 I think? Not sure why not earlier, though I don't know what it's availability was earlier; Vagabond was the only Varda film I saw in the cinema, sometime in the late 80s, and I didn't get around to exploring her work in any meaningful way until much later. Le bonheur might have been the first film I saw on video and it knocked me out, and so I went on to others like this one. And while I really liked it initially, there was something that held me back; I think it may have been Christine Machand's performance, which struck me initially as rather fake - but this time around I see that fakeness for what it's supposed to be - a young, vain, perhaps spoiled (how does she have that cool apartment when she's only recorded a couple of songs? we don't know her family situation but I'd guess she comes from money) young woman finally starting to open her eyes, on what might be the worst day of her life as she frets and waits for the real-time hour-and-a-half of the film for news of whether or not she may have a fatal illness. Marchand doesn't go too far, doesn't draw this change - which happens visually, too, with the costume change from light to dark dress at the halfway point - into something obvious, and I'd have to say this time around it seemed a marvellous performance. And the editing and photography as we journey around the city, the minimal, subtle music by the also-recently-departed Michel Legrand - all capture a moment both in our young heroine's life and in Paris as the Algeria War rages - but not for much longer - and just a short time before Vietnam and the youth movements of the decade come into full motion. Spring just before summer - and fall - perhaps? Pure passion.

13. Les croix de bois / Wooden Crosses (Raymond Bernard, 1932)

Another film very much focused on combat, this World War I story was apparently inspired by All Quiet on the Western Front which had been a huge international success a couple of years earlier. And it is the combat sequences here that really pulled me in, they are truly remarkable and I can't think of any pre--WWII film that is more visceral in it's battle scenes. Continuous explosions and machine gun fire go on for several minutes at a time, explosions dotting the screen and sometimes landing on the frail men trying to move forward a few feet, a few yards through no-man's land or a ruined cemetery; no other film I can think of before Paths of Glory and Nobi in the late 50s has this kind of impact and realism. Unfortunately the non-combat "quiet" scenes aren't nearly as good even later in the film it almost feels at times as if the soldiers are in a totally different place when not in combat - still joking and talking about women and food in a way that would seem to belie the situations they're in; and I just didn't get a distinct sense of most of the characters. Still it's a very impressive film from a technical standpoint, and in the end the character elements seem to work better as well.

FTV:31:Fun at the Barricades (1932) 7

“Soldiers are in his blood,like women can be under your skin.”

Image

Going down to the barracks with a sweeping opening shot over the town, director Maurice Tourneur (with editing by his son Jacques!) holds down his styling flourishes in remaking his own 1913 film, to crisply march this mad-cap coarse Comedy,with Tourneur finely dashing between mid and wide-shots to sling the latest escapade of the soldiers, and capture the look of shock from the commanding officers. Based on Georges Courteline and Edouard Nores’s play,the adaptation by Georges Dolley stays firmly on the grounds of the stage origins, with the activities being confined to the barricades, but makes up for it with a broad sense of humour in the course slap-sick from the soldiers sneaking banned items in, to slippery one-liners over fears that an unexpected inspection from a general goes awry. Stealing every scene he is in, Raimu gives a hilarious, puffed-up, self-important performance as Hurluret, who cracks as others have fun at the barricades.

I originally had thought of focusing on early cinema for this and the women filmmakers poll this month as I have a bunch of stuff handy, but it didn't work out that way. Still I manage an hour of Alice Guy and it was fruitful. It seems to me that she places somewhere between the Lumières and Méliès in that she works in both in the nascent documentary and fantastic-fiction modes, though I would say she isn't as inventive in the latter - at least not in these films - and her sets and backdrops are rarely as extravagant. But she really does develop over the course of a decade and these films, with most of the later films as impressive as anything else in cinema at the time - the ironic ending of La charité du prestidigitateur is pretty interesting, and not something I'm accustomed to in this era, and I love the way she compresses the whole Faust story into a couple of minutes in Faust et Méphistophélès - there's a real command of storytelling and editing developing here. But the best piece is probably the 11-minute Espagne, a travelogue that encompasses dancing (a Guy specialty), nature, and various city and architectural scenes. I'd say this looks forward in some respects to the city symphonies of the 20s and 30s though certainly it doesn't have the clear form and purpose of those kinds of works. Anyway, I look forward to more travels with Guy in the future and there's plenty left to peruse.

15. Agnès Varda shorts 16 + 36 + 11 = 63 minutes

a) Cléo de 5 à 7: souvenirs et anecdotes (2005)
b) L'opéra-mouffe (1958)
c) Les 3 boutons (2015)

The first is a 44-years-later look back at the director's first major success, with it's star Corinne Marchand interviewed at length and shorter bits with Antoine Bourseiller, Dorothée Black and Marin Karmitz (an AD on the original film, since then one of France's most important producers) - reminiscences, regrets, explanations, and re-evaluations. Varda dissects her own work and life like no other director and this is a fine example though overall not as interesting to me as some of her feature-length works like her two films about her late husband, which fall roughly into the same category. L'opéra-mouffe is playful and poetic cine-essay about the street she lived on, the Mouffetard, which I believe she continued to live on until her death, with pauses and asides about pregnancy (she was bearing her first child at the time) and sex. The real find her for me though was the recent Les 3 boutons which show the artist still at full ability in her late 80s with this wonderful fantasia combining elements of various fairytales (Cinderella most obviously) with life on a farm for an adolescent girl, and street scenes involving the three buttons she loses from her dress, each of which produces a magical result. This is a rather dense collage of ideas and forms and I think it will take another viewing to sort it all out, but it was wonderful regardless of whether I really got it all - and it's easy and fun to watch in any case, I don't mean to suggest it's a hard watch. Great stuff.

16. Jane B. par Agnès V. (Agnès Varda, 1988)

An essay film mixed with "fiction" footage (hence it's designation as a feature and a fantasy on IMDb I guess) profiling the actress Jane Birkin, and made I guess at the same time as Birkin was starring in Varda's more conventional feature Kung-fu Master!, released the same year. This explores issues like Birkin's English upper-class identity, her nostalgia for the lost home of her youth, her attitudes about sex and nudity, dreams and fantasies, etc, interspersed with brief stories or snippets of stories in which the actress plays various characters in French and English settings. I think I would probably find this easier to write about were I more familiar with Birkin's public profile and other performances - she comes off as a reluctant star and a big enough name that people would maybe think about a "Jane Birkin film" but this is lost on me. At any rate it's a fascinating mixture of stuff, beautifully shot and with Varda's usual meticulous attention to details in both objects (the furnishings in Birkin's house - and the fantasy-houses in her dreams) and faces and bodies.

That's all for me. Thanks Coryn!

Thanks for hosting Coryn.

Final Challenge viewing:

FTV:32: He (1932)/Le rosier de Madame Husson 7 (No IMDb reviews for it!)

Image

“Cinema is the school of vice.”


In adapting Guy de Maupassant’s novel, the screenplay by “ Russell M. Spalding” (who with no other credits is likely an alias) twists the classic into a US Pre-Code-inspired tale, (it later got put out in a dubbed,cut down version in the US)with Isidore pure innocence unleashing playfully comedic double entendres and sly asides over who will take his virginity. His first film since 1922, director Dominique Bernard-Deschamps & cinematographer Nicolas Farkas put one foot in the “talkie” and the other kept in the “Silent”, as the quick-fired dialogue is paired with stylish Silent passages, (backed by Michel Michelet’s delicate score) of Isidore edging towards losing his innocence. The model of virtue in the town, Françoise Rosay gives a shining, witty turn as Husson, whilst Fernandel convincingly holds on Isidore’s face a total lack of self-awareness over what he encounters.
