Catherine Breillat’s Metacinema

  • MUBI
Mubi's retrospective, Catherine Breillat, Auteur of Porn?, is showing April 4 - June 3, 2017 in Germany.Sex Is ComedyThroughout her career, Catherine Breillat has provided viewers with a long-form meta-cinema experience. While metacinema is as old as the medium itself, since her debut feature A Real Young Girl in 1976, Breillat has developed a distinct form of it: one that collapses ‘autobiographical’ material, various artistic sensibilities, and the process of filmmaking itself.Like dozens of other English words—such as ‘aesthetic’ or ‘abject’—the word ‘meta’ has been largely misused or misapplied with regard to the film and literary criticism. Regarding the consumption of fiction, the appropriate use of the term 'metafiction,' 'metafilm,' et cetera, has its basis in the Greek meta, which does not translate directly into English but can be understood as a preposition similar to the English word ‘about’ (‘having to do with,’ or ‘on the subject of’). Metafiction is therefore,

Exclusive Clip from Love Like Poison

  • HeyUGuys
Cannes 2011 is in full swing and it seems rather odd to post this clip from a movie which screened at the festival back in 2010 but it really shows how long some of these movies take to be seen in the rest of the world after debuting at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. Love Like Poison is directed by Katell Quillévéré and stars Clara Augarde, Lio, Michel Galabru, Stefano Cassetti, Thierry Neuvic and Youen Leboulanger-Gourvil. It’s available to view in cinemas now.

A coming-of-age drama which skillfully combines sexual frankness with a captivating sense of innocence, first-time director Katell Quillévéré’s charming Love Like Poison was a surprise, yet deserved, critical hit at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

Anna, a young teenager, comes home from her Catholic boarding school for the holidays and discovers her father has left. Her mother is devastated and confined in the company of the local priest,

This week's new films

Attack The Block (15)

(Joe Cornish, 2011, UK) John Boyega, Nick Frost, Jodie Whittaker. 88 mins

More Critters than Cloverfield, this alien-invasion movie is modest in scale and ambition but makes up for it in local flavour. The setting is south London – Brit cinema's default "ghetto" location, bruv – where sharp-toothed ETs come to regret messing with the hoodies, who team up with their recent victim and the upstairs drug dealer to defend their manor. It's no Shaun Of The Dead, but it's up-to-date and fitfully entertaining, and there's at least some social grit beneath the down-with-the-kids comedy.

A Screaming Man (PG)

(Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, 2010, Cha/Fra/Bel) Youssouf Djaoro, Dioucounda Koma, Emile Abssolo M'Bo. 91 mins

Saying a great deal with few resources, this skillful Chadian drama finds weighty moral, global and generational concerns in the story of a swimming pool attendant and his son.

Love Like Poison (15)

(Katell Quillévéré, 2010, Fra) Clara Augarde, Lio, Stefano Cassetti.

Love Like Poison – review

A bittersweet French gem from last year's Cannes festival gets a welcome UK release

Writer-director Katell Quillévéré, with her first feature, reveals herself to be a supremely natural film-maker; her movie speaks of Catholicism, nascent sexuality and la France profonde – and the characters she creates are subtly but richly sympathetic. This is a coming-of-age movie that is touching, funny, desperately sad and has a spiritual dimension that comes to its mysterious and satisfying fruition at the very end, with an inspired choral arrangement of Radiohead's Creep over the final credits.

Love Like Poison (the title is taken from a Serge Gainsbourg song) centres on a crisis with many facets. Anna, played by Clara Augarde, is a floweringly beautiful 14-year-old girl who comes home from her boarding school for the summer to find that her father, Paul (Thierry Neuvic), has left the family home for another woman. Her mother, Jeanne (Lio), now conceives a miserable,

‘Love Like Poison’ combines subversiveness with musical eclecticism and a touch of bawdy humour

Love Like Poison / Un Poison Violent

Director: Katell Quillévéré

Written by Katell Quillévéré

2010, France

With a title borrowed from Serge Gainsbourg, it should be no great surprise that Katell Quillévéré’s feature debut Love Like Poison combines subversiveness with musical eclecticism and a touch of bawdy humour. Quillévéré isn’t trying to pick up the mantle of Claude Chabrol — this is a coming-of-age drama set in rural Brittany and punctuated with some unexpected English folk songs. Even if you’ve had your fill of adolescent angst, narcotic experiments and clandestine gropings, the fearless performance here of young Clara Augarde is reason enough to watch.

The story begins in church, with 14-year-old Anna (Augarde), being distracted during Holy Communion by winsome choirboy Pierre (Youen Leboulanger-Gourvil) giving her the eye. This is the first of several occasions in the film, when Anna’s behaviour during a religious service doesn’t meet the
