Destroy, She Said

Détruire dit-elle

Directed by Marguerite Duras
France, 1969


The story of a middle-class couple whose lives are drastically transformed by two men and a woman. Or is it about the breakdown of our class society? Or is it a story of a professor married to one of his ex-students who falls in love with a married woman of his own age?

Destroy, She Said Directed by Marguerite Duras

Critics reviews

Low-key in tone, it does not seem like the sort of “art film” designed to break new ground. But it does so, and by explicit intention: Duras described her text as “a book that could either be read or acted or filmed or, I always add, simply thrown away.” The key word in this is “book,” as literature is always primary for Duras—even in the midst of the seemingly resolutely “cinematic.”
