A set of (false) leads driven by the duo Joe Dallesandro / Maria Schneider

New 2K restoration

A man and a woman meet in a hotel near Roissy airport because they have both received a telegram from a certain Elisabeth inviting them to this mysterious meeting. They meet: the American Ben is a friend of the young woman while Leo is none other than her younger sister. With no news from Elisabeth, Ben and Leo go looking for her. But when they finally find her, she is kidnapped before their eyes...

With Merry-Go-Round , Jacques Rivette signs a thrilling chase through the Parisian suburbs that looks like a spy film. The filmmaker plays with the spectator as well as with his characters in this game of the goose on a human scale, led by his formidable duo of actors: Joe Dallesandro, darling of New York underground cinema and muse of Andy Warhol then courted by many European directors, and Maria Schneider, the heroine of Last Tango in Paris and Profession: reporter .
