LA CICATRICE INTÉRIEURE

"In 1972, Nico sang and screamed in the desert of New Mexico, the snowy plains of Iceland and the calcified landscapes of Egypt. Philippe Garrel shot the ultimate film-trip, LA CICATRICE INTÉRIEURE, in the most desolate landscapes of the world. This is a reexamination of a crucial work of art– whose influence can be seen in the films of Gus Van Sant (GERRY) and Vincent Gallo (THE BROWN BUNNY) – and of the mythical love affair between a gifted filmmaker and his phantasmagorical idol."

- Les Inrockuptibles

LA CICATRICE INTÉRIEURE is a total masterpiece. I can’t explain it... all of a sudden, the whole of humanity, the whole planet is speaking - the planet as in the ancient sense of the mother. But it’s not even the planet that’s speaking, it’s the soil... It’s incredible, it’s all in there.

- Henri Langlois, Cahiers du Cinéma

MARIE POUR MÉMOIRE

“You can't ask questions of LA CICATRICE INTÉRIEURE, you just have to enjoy watching it, in the same way as you'd enjoy taking a walk in the desert. The film is a record of what was going through my head at the time of the shoot; it can consist only of traces and marks.”

- Philippe Garrel

LES ENFANTS DÉSACORDÉS

“When it was made, LA CICATRICE INTÉRIEURE, was poetry. It later became painting, and now it’s become a novel and even theater. It might be all wrong. We should make lms without asking too many questions.”

- Philippe Garrel
