23 March 2005 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Lucky to see this movie at a Duras Film Festival in Chicago many years ago. Duras and Gérard Depardieu read a script while we watch a truck make its rounds with Diabelli Variations in background.. Can't explain why it works but it does. I read an essay about this movie and it spoke to an "autism" in its style. Not sure the story matters but it is about a lone Jewish Hitch hiker who is picked up by the truck driver. I also believe it recounts Duras's involvement in the French Communist Party. I don't understand why movies directed by Duras are not on DVD. Must be something she wrote in her will. Who owns these movies? I especially would like to see "Moderato Cantabille" on DVD.
