Le Lit De La Vierge

Le Lit De La Vierge


"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
