After the Reconciliation(APRÈS LA RÉCONCILIATION)

  • Dir: Anne-Marie Miéville

  • France/Switzerland, 2000, French, 71mins, DCP

  • Cast: Jean-Luc Godard, Anne-Marie Miéville, Claude Perron, Jacques Spiesser

In Anne-Marie Miéville’s penetrating drama, she co-stars alongside Godard in a rare but brilliant acting role as the emotionally-detached Robert. The enduring couple discuss the very use of speech, and the fundamental questions of love and happiness after failed seduction attempts from others. A modernist and poetic contemplation of emotional severity that renders the real-life conflicts between the longtime collaborators all the more painful and romantic, Miéville proves herself to be a great filmmaker in her own right, and it becomes clear that her emotional insight has begun to influence Godard as early as the late 1970s.
