Following soon after Godard’s ELOGE DE L’AMOUR, Nouvelle Vague compatriot Rivette turns in a sparkling, playful (literally) tale of romance and relationships, centred upon the theatre. Three years after fleeing a broken romance, French actress Camille (Balibar) returns to Paris with her lover Ugo, the Italian director (and co-star) of the Pirandello play As You Desire Me that they will be staging in the French capital. Soon Camille meets her old flame, Ugo meets another woman and others become involved. Intertwined, tangled relationships abound in this look at love, truth, and acting.
Directed by Jacques Rivette
