Night Wind (Le Vent De La Nuit)
DIRECTOR: PHILIPPE GARREL
CAST: CATHERINE DENEUVE, DANIEL DUVAL, XAVIER BEAUVOIS
A meeting between two elemental forces of the French cinema, Garrel and Catherine Deneuve, Le vent de la nuit looks back to Garrel’s stern, cold productions of the 1970s, depicting a world where suicide is the only escape from the incessant demands of the past. With Deneuve as an unhappy housewife, Xavier Beauvois her young lover, and a lovely score courtesy of John Cale. A marvel of sustained rhythm and tone. New Digital Restoration, overseen by cinematographer Caroline Champetier.
