Présentation ou Charlotte et son steak

Éric Rohmer

IndieLisboa 2019 •

França, Fiction, 1960, 12′

Shot outdoors in Switzerland with amateur actors and handheld camera, Présentation ou Charlotte et son steak precedes the French New Wave: shot by Rohmer in 1951 but completed ten years later when the 16mm material was blown-up to 35mm and post-synchronization was performed. Stéphane Audran and Anna Karina interpret the voices of the two girls. A young Jean-Luc Godard appears, without glasses. A little love drama of a youthful winter. (Cinemateca Portuguesa)
