Le Garçu

Maurice Pialat

  • Le Garçu (Maurice Pialat)


“The chief victim of his own desire for solitude and insatiable need for consolation, the Pialat male is also obsessively afraid of losing what little he has left. Le Garçu is entirely devoted to this horror of loss. Pialat's art, which consists of successive compressions and revelations, is that of an illusionist of the real. In this his last film, his urge to return to the autobiographical arose from a desire to explore the event that most deeply affected his final years: the birth of his first child." —Frédéric Bonnaud, Film Comment
