Montparnasse 19 Directed by Jacques Becker, Max Ophüls

Critics reviews

In Les Amants de Montparnasse, even the odd, spectacular shot of sunlit, Provençal rooftops (reminiscent of Marcel Pagnol comedies) is tied to Modigliani’s point-of-view. But this apparent fidelity to human scale allows Becker to pull off a visual and emotional coup so audacious not even Ophuls, Becker’s mentor Renoir or Modigliani’s acquaintance and one-time subject Cocteau quite managed.

It is wrong to call this the most Bressonian film by the director of the splendid Rue de l’Estrapade, because in agreeing to shoot Montparnasse 19, [Becker] has not yielded to the temptation of the absolute but to the call of the void.
