We’re reviving Jacques Rivette’s best-known film: an elaborate fairy tale with literary roots in Lewis Carroll and Borges, and cinematic roots in Méliès, Marienbad and Laurel and Hardy.
In a film-with-in-a-film structure, memory and fantasy stretch an encounter between a librarian and a magician into the past and the future while never leaving the present. The whimsical story involves a white rabbit chase through Montmartre, a mysterious old house in the Paris suburbs, and strange potions in the form of little candies placed on the tongue.
A film that has retained its cult status, Celine And Julie Go Boating invites repeat viewings.
