Jackie Raynal - DeuxFois

Rating: 

Average: 3.5 (2 votes)

About thirty shots, with rarely a spoken word. But this wouldn\'t be worth mentioning if Deux Fois were not the film it is: one of the strongest ... yet, at the same time, most enigmatic works ever seen."This cinema 'au feminin' reminds us what the imperialist eye had repressed: different modes of editing impulses; what is seen and heard alters our perspective."
Serge Daney, Les Cahiers du cinéma

"This film is an intentionally elementary meditation on certain primary functions of film, that could be said to be at the roots of film editing as such - expectations, exploring the picture, perceptual memory, relationships between on-screen and off-screen space - all explored in a series of free-standing sequence shots of perfect simplicity."
Noel Burch

"About thirty shots, with rarely a spoken word. But this wouldn't be worth mentioning if Deux Fois were not the film it is: one of the strongest (and I'm weighing my words in these times of verbal inflation) yet, at the same time, most enigmatic works ever seen. It took me three screenings over the course of several years to accept that I don't understand a thing about Deux Fois"
Louis Skorecki, Semaine des Cahiers

Contains a 40-page booklet about the film and the Zanzibar group by Claire Renier.
