18:00 L'amant
French actress Isabelle Huppert read excerpts of the autobiographical novel L’amant (The Lover), written by French writer Marguerite Duras. 75 min (without intermission). In French with Russian subtitles. Indochina, 1930. The white and minor daughter of poor colonists meets a rich Chinese heir. The unpredictable encounter happens. And as desire is forbidden, it grows more intense. As soon as published in fall 1984, L’amant sells hundreds of thousands of copies. This is a wonderful story, which concentrates in a simple and moving form a lifelong experience. With Maguerite Duras, life and literature haunt each other, and both are haunted by her Indochinese childhood. L’amant, it appears as if the writer, in the twilight of her life, would leaf through an old photo album. Her voice vibrates through the words written on the pages, and comments the images, as forgotten landscapes of the Mékong waters, of her mother’s house, are recollected. Together with landscapes silhouettes are brought back to life. Amongst them, comes the one of the lover. Is name is never pronounced.
