The extraordinary film of a major figure of the New Wave
New 2K restoration
Paris, April 1970. Two avant-garde theater troupes are each rehearsing a play by Aeschylus. A young deaf-mute begs in cafes playing the harmonica. A young woman seduces men to extract money from them. As a conspiracy unfolds, bonds are forged between the various protagonists.
Founding member of the New Wave with Jean-Luc Godard, François Truffaut, Éric Rohmer and Claude Chabrol, Jacques Rivette has always been the free electron with the most radical aesthetic. Out 1 , his fourth feature film and the pinnacle of his art, is the best example. Jean-Pierre Léaud plays a whimsical young man who receives anonymous messages putting him on the trail of a mysterious group of conspirators.
Based on a unique concept, notably the absence of a script and nods to Honoré de Balzac and Lewis Carroll, Out 1 remained almost invisible for more than forty years. Out 1: noli me tangere , the full version, in eight episodes, and Out 1: Spectre , the short version, are finally available in 2K restored versions supervised by cinematographer Pierre-William Glenn ( La Nuit Americaine ). The colorful characters that Léaud encounters during his quest are played by Juliet Berto, Michael Lonsdale, Bernadette Lafont, Bulle Ogier, Françoise Fabian, Jean-François Stévenin and other icons of the New Wave, with appearances by Éric Rohmer and Barbet Schroeder.
A journey in total immersion at the crossroads of cinema, literature and theatre, Out 1 is considered the Holy Grail of contemporary French cinema!
