Eric Rohmer. Preuves à l'appui

Eric Rohmer. Preuves à l'appui

Country: France
Year: 1994
Duration: 60' + 60'

"Opening up his files, searching through little exercise books with squared paper for the spark that set off this or that film, comparing successive phases of a single screenplay, projecting essays filmed in Super8 on his office wall - in fact, giving proof at every stage of what he is saying - Rohmer reveals himself, without a shadow of a doubt, as he has never done before. Loves, rejections, sides taken, obsessions, doubts... Who better than he could have expounded the philosophy of the little group of 'Cahiers du cinéma', the group that, as everyone knows, was to turn the elements of cinema on their heads with the passing of the Sixties? And who better to clarify the sense of the question put by Paul Valèry which closes the two parts of the film: 'Une vague - en quoi est-elle un méme?'." (André S. Labarthe)
