Trois Fragments de Fuir — Jean-Philippe Toussaint
Trois Fragments de Fuir
Past: March 3 → June 11, 2012
A three-part cinematographic voyage, featuring Dolores Chaplin and filmed specifically for the exhibition “Livre/Louvre” by Jean- Philippe Toussaint, adapted from his novel Fuir, published by Editions de Minuit, winner of the 2005 Prix Médicis.
Louvre: Marie learns of the death of her father while visiting the Louvre. She runs through the museum looking for the exit.
China: Chased by the police, three protagonists escape into the Chinese night by racing off on a motorcycle together.
Elba: The ocean drinks up Marie’s tears.
Rarely at rest, caressing and attentive, the camera closely follows the rhythms of bodies and the agitation of minds, capturing every move by the protagonists. Bathed in music and light, this film exalts the sensuality of beings and space.
Beginning at 2 p.m. In the audiovisual room under the Pyramid, free admission
