Le Genou d’Artemide presents the passionate exchange of orations by two mature gentlemen in a sun-dappled woody glade. In Itineraire de Jean Bricard, Straub and Huillet show us the Loire in long moving takes of the river in silvery black-and-white.
Le genou d'Artémide is the first film made by Jean-Marie Straub since the sad death of filmmaking partner, Danièle Huillet. Like some of their recent films it is based on the writings of Cesare Pavese. At once delightfully simple and delicately profound, it presents the passionate exchange of orations by two mature gentlemen in a sun-dappled woody glade. Their words, their postures, the setting and the natural movement of the light on the trees blend to create a rich and slightly melancholic apparition.
