Anne Wiazemsky and Nico in Elle a passé tant d'heures sous les sunlights... (Garrel, 1985):

Bernadette Lafont and Edith Piaf in La maman et la putain (Eustache, 1973):

Above: Short clips from two deeply connected films which I uploaded more than a week ago. The Garrel film (the title of which has been roughly translated to 'She Spent So Many Hours Under the Sunlight Lamps...') is an implicit homage to Eustache and a major work in itself, a film of fragmentations and improvisations and dead white spaces and brutal cuts, a complex association of the self-reflexive documentary and the 'fictionalised' autobiography, a film about the representation of movements - the most important being from unexplained departures to hopeful new beginnings.

RIP: Glenn Ford, so indispensable in films such as The Big Heat, Jubal, Gilda, 3:10 To Yuma, et al.

beautiful Garrel, still on an exploratory experimental way, without the regular normality of narrative fictional cinema, even though sometimes he managed to disrupt it, like in his last and awesome movie. By the way, a post about garrel is under construction- it takes taime because i have to translate it for english and meanwhile i'm in a Berlin state of mind...
