My Poster Problem | Un Nouvelle Vie

My Poster Problem | Un Nouvelle Vie

Yet another poster post

This was the third of the posters I acquired in Cannes, and one I think is a gorgeous image. The film itself? Well, I saw it years ago at MoMA. Olivier Assayas’ Une Nouvelle Vie (aka A New Life) was made just one year before L’Eau Froide (Cold Water) but it feels worlds apart. I consider L’Eau Froide to be one of the great films of the 1990’s, but Une Nouvelle Vie itself is a lesser work; yes, it has its charms, but let’s just say there was no L’Eau Froide poster for sale that day. Still, I think the image is striking and again, since I had just moved to New York City when I bought it and I had just begin working in film, the idea of ‘a new life’ remains appealing to me on a lot of different levels. That said, if anyone knows where I can get my hands on a L’Eau Froide poster…

Now, what’s that reflected in the glass? Yet another poster? All will be revealed…
