CE QU'IL RESTERA DE NOUS
2012 / 40 mins / DCP
Macaigne gained fame as a stage director for staging canon classics in a manner that scraped off the crust of reverence to get to the raw life-force of the material beneath. Here he gives the business to a Molière comedy, a punked-out reading that brings it rollicking and raging into the 21st century—a provocative Comédie-Française road movie that led Les Temps to exclaim “Le cinéaste Macaigne massacre Molière.” Screening with Ce qu’il restera de nous, Macaigne’s César-nominated short concerning two brothers reunited by their father’s death. An extraordinarily accomplished work, attuned to the slightest nuance of fraught fraternal relations and clear-eyed in its comprehension of how money can fray even the most intimate bonds.
