"Out 1" is a very precise picture of post May 1968 malaise - when Utopian dreams of a new society had crashed and burned, radical terrorism was starting to emerge in unlikely places and a great many other things. Two marginals who don't know one another stumble into the remnants of a "secret society": Colin, a seemingly deaf-mute who all of a sudden begins to talk and Frederique, a con artist working the "short con" (stealing drinks and tricking men who think she's a hooker out of their money). Meanwhile, there are two theater groups rehearsing classic Greek dramas: "Seven Against Thebes" and "Prometheus Bound". A member of the Moretti group passes a note to Leaud about "The 13" which sends Leaud on a search for "The 13". His search brings him eventually to Bulle Ogier's shop in Les Halles "L'Angle du Hasard." Berto follows much the same path when she steals a cachet of letters from Jacques Doniol-Valcroze and tries to get money from their owners for their return. These twin ... Written by filmfanatic99

Crazy Credits

In the closing credits to the first three episodes, Colin (who is pretending to be a deaf mute) is not credited by his character name, but as "le jeune sourd-muet" which translates to "the young deaf/ mute". After that is revealed to be an act and his name is finally spoken, the credits to the remaining episodes credit him as Colin. See more »

"Voyage into the heart of cinema..."
17 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

French screenwriter, film theorist and director Jacques Rivette's fourth feature film which he co-directed and wrote with French screenwriter and director Suzanne Schiffman (1929-2001), is an adaptation of a novel by French 20th century author Honoré de Balzac. It premiered in France, was shot on locations in France and is a French production which was produced by producer Stéphane Tchalgadjieff. It tells the story about a theatre director named Thomas whom is rehearsing with his theatre group, another stage director named Lili whom is doing the same, a multicolored and playful person named Frédérique who says she is searching for her brother, introduces herself to many people and who has an agenda, a law practitioner named Lucie, a mother and shop owner named Pauline whom is planning on publishing a newspaper with some friends, a writer named Sarah and a quiet though sometimes talkative person named Colin who lives in an apartment in France and is looking for someone referred to as the Thirteen.

Distinctly and masterfully directed by French filmmaker Jacques Rivette, this quietly paced fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints, draws an informative, mystifying and constantly changing portrayal of somewhat clandestine and collective human beings with a shared history who spends their time interpreting historic works of literature and their own psychological and emotional experiences of improvisation, a Frenchman motivated by a conspiracy theory and a pretender lost in deception. While notable for its versatile milieu depictions and distinct audiovisual innovation, this character- driven, narrative-driven and dialog-driven story about role playing, narrative fragmentation, the integral importance of interpreters of characters and how efficient and creative they are when treated with the dignity, humanity and professionalism which is characteristic for this creator and philosopher of cinema, the coexistence between fiction and reality within a cinematic context and the art of letting go and remembering with love, is an esoteric play with words where actress Juliet Berto performs magic in a scene with a man and a mirror and an unprecedented playact made the same year as the Manifesto of the 343 was published in the French magazine Le Monde, the year after the Roman Catholic Church named Italian 14th century Saint Catherine of Siena and Spanish 16th century Saint Teresa of Ávila as the first female Doctors of the Church, German citizens Ulrike Meinhof and Andreas Baader created the Red Army Faction and after the French New Wave period, depicts multiple interrelated and mystic studies of character and contains a rare score by composer Jean-Pierre Drouet.

This twelve hour and forty minutes voyage into the heart of cinema from the early 1970s which is set in Paris, France in 1970 and where the role of the director, the actors and the spectator is distinctly defined, is impelled and reinforced by its crucial narrative structure, subtle character development, measured continuity, confidence in actors, discussions about acting, black-and-white photographs, Thomas playing on a flute, Colin and his harmonica, masterful scene with Colin and Pauline at the L'Angle du Hasard, comment by an actress playing a journalist: "I should like to know … what political thinking underpinned your action?" and answer by an actress playing a goddess: "No politics." and the timeless and dearly appreciated acting performances by French actresses and actors Juliet Berto, Michèle Moretti, Hermine Karagheuz, Edwine Moatti, Christiane Corthay, Bernadette Onfroy, Bernadette Lafont, Bulle Ogier, François Fabian and Pierre Baillot, Michael Lonsdale and Jean-Pierre Léaud. A transcendently communicative and at times poignantly hilarious work of majestic diversity and unparalleled versatility.
