Céline and Julie Go Boating

Buy At: Amazon.com Amazon.co.uk
Directed by: Jacques Rivette

Céline (Juliet Berto), a magician, and Julie (Dominique Labourier), a librarian, meet in Montmartre and end up sharing the same flat, bed, fiancé, clothes, identity and imagination. Soon, thanks to a magic sweet, they find themselves spectators, then participants, in a Henry James-inspired film-within-the film - a melodrama unfolding in a mysterious suburban house with the 'Phantom Ladies Over Paris' (Bulle Ogier and Marie-France Pisier), a sinister man (Barbet Shroeder) and his child.

Céline and Julie Go Boating, Rivette's rarely seen yet biggest commercial hit, is an exhilarating combination of the themes of theatricality, paranoia and la vie parisienne, all wrapped up in an extended and entrancing examination of the nature of film-making (and film-watching).
