Film Comment Selects: A L’AVENTURE

Film Comment Selects: A L'AVENTURE

“I can’t imagine that Jean-Claude Brisseau will find himself among the critically coddled members of the art-house canon, or that his American premieres will someday be greeted with polite, eager reviews in hip city papers,” wrote Reverse Shot’s Nick Pinkerton in his assessment of 2005’s Secret Things. And while Nick—whose stalwart advocacy for this perviest of all contemporary French directors (edging out countryman Benoît Jacquot by several hairs) inspired me to look through his back catalogue—is probably right, there’s something to be said for the fact that Brisseau’s À l’aventure is being showcased in the Film Comment Selects programme alongside such art movies of the moment as Gotz Spiellman’s Revanche and Philippe Garel’s Frontier of Dawn.
