“Catrine… Catrine… je t’aime…”

Alain Resnais announced in a recent interview with Positif the forthcoming DVD releases of Je t’aime, Je t’aime and Providence.

Je t’aime, je t’aime is a film I’ve most eagerly awaited for years as it is very rarely screened. Jonathan Rosenbaum says it was one of the main inspirations for Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind. This time travel fantasy had a somewhat unfortunate destiny. The may events in 1968 caused the dissolution of the Cannes Film Festival where it should have had its premiere. Its subsequent showings were cooly received by critics and audiences alike. From here might stem its status as a work that was somewhat neglected afterwards by Resnais.

    Looks very promising

    Recovering from an attempted suicide, a man is selected to participate in a time travel experiment that has only been tested on mice… (more), and written by Jacques Sternberg.

  2. Thank you Jan,
    “…french sci-fi can almost be summarized in ‘La Jetée’, ‘Paris n’existe pas’ (don’t even try to find this one…) and ‘Je t’aime, Je t’aime’. ”
    “Paris n’existe pas” was directed by Robert Benayoun.

    I just returned from a screening in Chicago. Je t’aime Je taime is a memorable film, an expose on memory and loss. Every film buff should see the film.
