Le Lit De La Vierge

Le Lit De La Vierge

Synopsis

"I believe my point of view on the Christian myth is quite clear in Le Lit De La Verge. It is a non-violent parable in which Zouzou incarnates both Mary and Mary Magdalene while Pierre Clementi incarnates a discouraged Christ who throws down his arms in face of world cruelty. In spite of its allegorical nature, the film contains a denunciation of the police repression of 1968, which was generally well understood by viewers at the time." – Philippe Garrel
