RIVETTE X 2

Le Pont du Nord

A hallucinatory fever dream, and a spellbinding, through-the-looking-glass thriller as only French New Wave titan Rivette could make, Le Pont du Nord plays like the darker, conspiracy-theory-obsessed cousin of the director’s beloved Céline and Julie Go Boating. This tale of two women follows ex-con Marie (Bulle Ogier), and Baptiste (Bulle’s real-life daughter Pascale) for a surreal odyssey through Paris, replete with mysterious clues, codes, traps, and spies. – Brooklyn Art Museum
