Le pont des Arts / The bridge of art (2004) DVD9
Masterful film about crossing lives, grand love, real art and the beauty of life.
In Eugene Green's third full-length film set around 1980, it is Baroque that links two symmetrical stories on the Paris bridge that gives the film its title. Pascal (Michaux, always to be seen in Green's films) is in the last year of his literature studies, unmotivated and listless, but his thesis - and his relationship with the ambitious Christine - suffer as a result of his obsession for the poetry of Michelangelo. Classical vocalist Sarah (another beautiful role by Natacha Regnier) suffers under the verbal abuse of the conductor - known as 'The Unnameable' - with whom she is working on recording Monteverdi's Lamento della ninfa and is imprisoned in an unsatisfying relationship. An impossible love unfolds between the two of them in Baroque dialogues. Strangely enough, this love is moving, elevated, artistic and humorously absurd.
