THE INNER SCAR / I CAN NO LONGER HEAR THE GUITAR
THE INNER SCAR
LA CICATRICE INTERIEURE
1972, The Film Desk, 60 min, France, Dir: Philippe Garrel

Perhaps the most striking of several collaborations between Philippe Garrel and singer-songwriter Nico (the director’s longtime lover and muse), this experimental travelogue was shot in such disparate locations as Death Valley and Iceland, and is filled with stark, dreamlike imagery. As well as appearing onscreen, Nico supplied the music to the film, much of which would appear on her "Desertshore" album.


35 mm!

I CAN NO LONGER HEAR THE GUITAR
J’ENTENDS, PLUS LA GUITARE
1991, The Film Desk, 98 min, France, Dir: Philippe Garrel

A Silver Lion winner at the 1991 Venice Film Festival, this semi-autobiographical drama is a haunting tribute to Philippe Garrel’s 10-year relationship with iconic German performer Nico. Here the central couple Marianne (Johanna ter Steege) and Gérard (Benoît Régent) drift together and apart through a self-destructive heroin haze. “Holding tight to his characters with long takes and close-ups, capturing them only at the breaking points in their lives, Garrel balances a hypnotic romanticism with the frightening lurch of unsteady emotions.” - Richard Brody, The New Yorker.
