La Cicatrice interieure

Rarovideo:
Okay, LA CICATRICE INTERIEURE was supposed to be on the forthcoming DVD title THE VELVET UNDERGROUND & NICO + VINYL but there are problems with rights which (currently) can not be solved in time for our DVD release so we have had to leave it out. However, there may be a possibility that this title can be released next year.
What confirms this and let's it look even more possible:
Recently restored or new prints that screened at Cannes in May include La Cicatrice intérieure (restored by the Cinémathèque francaise) -- source


So let's hope for the best. I for my part cancelled my order of the existing R2 DVD from Japan, which is reported to have a bad transfer and burnt-in japanese subtitles.

some teasers for the unacquainted:

These pics look great! I keep reading about this french director and I wouldn't mind picking this particular film up - I believe it's his most famous. What is the film about, anyway?

That's really hard to say. Ultimately it's about relationship. (sorry, i can't be more specific - but story isn't the important factor here) Philippe Garrel despises most of his early works for relying foremost on images as opposed to telling a story. He may be right that this film hasn't much to "say" (in a straightforward kind of way), but it also never left my mind after seeing it for the first time* at the Vienna International Filmfestival in 1995 (he even attended the screening). That also has to say something about a work of art. One simply doesn't forget Nico's moaning and all the beautifully shot landscapes.

"La cicatrice interi�ure"(with Nico) and "Les hautes solitudes"(with Jean Seberg) are among the most haunting(in a good way) cinema experiences of my life. I 'll never forget that day in 1995 and the atmosphere. I hate directors who think they have grown past their early work and try everything to suppress it from the, at least, video watching public.

They've done English subs a number of times... Kiarostami's THE WIND WILL CARRY US, the Bresson boxset, etc.

They are very hit and miss though (with regard to including English subtitles).

Id forgotten the Bressons. But of course they had already signed up releases in the UK and Australia.

MK2 has also put subs on all of its Truffaut discs (only on some extras), its great 80s Resnais boxset (not on extras), two out of four films in its Pintilie boxed set, along with Pintilie's THE OAK and AN UNFORGETTABLE SUMMER (not on extras), and several Chabrol titles (not on extras).
The moral? Maybe subs on film, but probably not extras.

The brochure for this month's French Film Festival touring in the UK shows Artificial Eye as UK distributor for Les Amants réguliers and so an English-subtitled DVD should appear in due course even if the MK2 has none.

Anybody find out if the Mk2 releaseof Les Amants reguliers has English subtitles? If it doesn't, Brunosh's post certainly seems hopeful that Artifical Eye will get on it by the end of the year.

For what it's worth, the other films in the French festival I mentioned above which are listed as to be distributed by AE are Moll's Lemming and Ozon's Time to Leave (both opening in London next month) and Le Peron's I Saw Ben Barka Get Killed.

Films listed to other UK distributors (and so a fair bet for English-subtitled R2 DVDs) are 36 Quai des Orfevres (the remake), Cockles and Muscles (also opening next month - looks ghastly judging, probably unfairly, by the trailer I saw today before The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada), Tanovic's Hell, Russian Dolls, Zilbermann's Bad Spelling, Techine's Strayed (opened in London last month), Giannoli's An Adventure and My Angel.

Garrel's Le Lit de la Vierge

#16 Post by hellboytr » Thu May 25, 2006 4:48 am

Garrel's Le Lit de la Vierge (1969) [The Virgin's Bed] has recently been released on DVD by re:voir :D I think it is the first Zanzibar film ever on DVD in the west...
LE LIT DE LA VIERGE (The Virgin's Bed)
Directed by Philippe Garrel
France 1969, 35mm, b/w, 114 min.
With Pierre Clementi, Zouzou, Tina Aumont

Born in 1948, Philippe Garrel was the wunderkind of French cinema in the 1960s. His fifth feature, Le Lit de la Vierge, is a parable about Jesus set in modern times. Shot in the aftermath of the uprisings of May 1968, the film reverberates with the rebellious spirit of that period. Pierre ClŽmenti plays a Christ reluctant to assume his earthly mission, while the Virgin Mary (Zouzou, doubly cast as Mary Magdalene) attempts to reconcile him with his duty. Garrel invokes the Christian narrative only to reject a strict retelling in a chronicle that is episodic and nonlinear. In naming his characters Mary and Jesus, Garrel reminds us of the contestatory attitude of the '68 generation, for whom Jesus was a hippie avant la lettre. Made without a script and under the in3Ú4uence of LSD, Le Lit de la Vierge is minimally concerned with traditional religion. It does, however, suggest the ways in which Garrel and his friends saw themselves as belonging to a kind of religious sect, engaging in ritual behavior.
For an interesting article on Zanzibar group, see here. I don't know whether there are English subtitles or not, but i have heard that the film's dialogue is minimal in any case... The DVD can be ordered from revoir's site

It's not a bad idea to consolidate these posts into FilmFanSea's release calendar, which is stickied.

I don't know if Louis Garrel's César would be the reason to see this film as much as Garrel's methodical direction. It's the most honest illustration of the May 68 fallout that I've seen apart from Eustache.

Alain Tanner's 'Jonah, Who Will be 25 in the Year 2000', sadly somewhat forgetten now, is also a strong contender among '68 fallout' films.

By 'this film' you mean Les Amants Reguliers ?

Well...you may find it worth seeing for 'Garrel's methodical direction' and/or for William Lubtchanski's glorious photography...

I for one was very impressed with both. The film itself? I think it would greatly benefit from losing approx. 60 mins. I really don't see this as a film that will be remembered in 5 years time (or even 2 for that matter) but i think it's best if you see it for yourself and make up your own mind as I imagine this film has its supporters (even if i'm not sure entirely why...)

There's an article on Philippe Garrel in the new (August) Sight & Sound. I didn't know he had made films with Nico (who was his longtime lover). I don't suppose there are any Garrel films on DVD with English subs, are there?

There's a clip from The Inner Scar in Nico-Icon. The cover of Desertshore also comes from that film.

There's a Japanese dvd but I have no idea if it has subtitles or is even still in print.

I saw it as well, and thought it was about as tedious as Bertolucci's 'The Dreamers': short on political substance, long on photogenic youthful poseurs smoking opium for hours on end. There is something incredibly ersatz about both films: a failed attempt to 'recreate' a period too literally, with a cast closer to fashion models than revolutionaries. I kept thinking that for the 'spirit of 68' on film, one should just return to the Godard leading up to that point ('2 ou 3 choses...', 'La Chinoise', 'Week End'). Or maybe we just have to wait for a 68-themed film with more grit and less Louis Garrel.
