Elle a passé tant d’heures sous les sunlights…

Directed by Philippe Garrel
France, 1985
Drama

Synopsis

Faceted, fragmented, and oneiric, Philippe Garrel’s She Spent So Many Hours Under the Sun Lamps is an abstract, yet lucid chronicle of love and loss, death and birth sublimated through textural, self-reflexive impressions, visceral gestures, and metaphoric tableaux.

Critics reviews

Elle a passé tant d’heures sous les sunlights (which translates, literally, to She Spent So Many Hours Under the Sun Lamps, 1985) opens with a young filmmaker, Paul (Jacques Bonnaffé), pleading with his girlfriend, Christa (Anne Wiazemsky), not to leave him. It’s a scene of staggering potency: Paul’s voice breaks and halts, his relentlessness driving them both to exhaustion.
