    Episode 458: L'Amour Fou (1969)

    Our look at 1969 continues with a discussion of Jacques Rivette’s L’Amour Fou. The story of a director, Sebastien, and an actress, Claire. We watch them work together on the play Andromaque -- seeing the crafting of the production via behind-the-scenes 16mm footage as well as the 35mm film cameras that capture the real behind-the-scenes footage of Sebastien and Claire’s fizzling relationship.

    Jonathan Owen and Samm Deighan join Mike to discuss this four hour epic which marks a radical change in Rivette's filmmaking.
