The Long Absence (Une aussi longue absence)

Directed by Henri Colpi

Written by Marguerite Duras and Gerald Jarlot

France, 1961

The 1960s were an important and innovative time in French film history. Although France has always been the front-runner for the daring, the urbane and the inventive when it comes to cinema (amongst other things), it was during this revolutionary decade in particular that French filmmakers began to personalise their work in ways that changed the filmic landscape permanently. There are many praiseworthy and well-known examples that can be given to further emphasize this statement, such as Jean-Luc Godard’s Le mépris (1963) or Jacques Demy’s Les parapluies de Cherbourg (1964), however, there are also some lesser known films that help to further accentuate what was going on in France post World War II. It is with these less familiar films that perhaps audiences are able to better comprehend the everyday struggles »
