October 25: Je t’aime, je t’aime

Thursday, October 25 | 8PM Je t’aime, je t’aime aka I Love You, I Love You France 1968 d. Alain Resnais with Claude Rich, Olga Georges-Picot and Anouk Ferjac. In French with English subtitles. Colour. 91 m

“In Je t’aime, je t’aime, Claude’s journeys into the past resemble nothing less than memory — fragmented, inconstant, taunting, joyous and heartbreaking. We are, the movie reminds us, what we remember, with a consciousness built from reminiscences that flicker, fade and repeat, flicker, fade and repeat. It’s no wonder that movies enthrall us! Cinema is a time machine, and, as he has long proved, from Last Year at Marienbad to Muriel and beyond, Mr. Resnais is its ultimate time traveler.”   Manohla Dargis
