Episode 458: L'Amour Fou (1969)

Guest Co-Hosts: Samm Deighan, Jonathan Owen

Our look at 1969 continues with a discussion of Jacques Rivette's L'Amour Fou. The story of a director, Sebastien (Jean-Pierre Kalfon), and an actress, Claire (Bulle Ogier). We watch them work together on the play Andromaque -- seeing the crafting of the production via behind-the-scenes 16mm footage as well as the 35mm film cameras that capture the real behind-the-scenes footage of Sebastien and Claire’s fizzling relationship.

Jonathan Owen and Samm Deighan join Mike to discuss the film and the overall cinema of Jacques Rivette.
