Critic Reviews for 36 vues du Pic Saint Loup (Around a Small Mountain)
Rivette is 82 now, and his best work may be behind him.
Sometimes a film is simply a story we might have found interesting to live.
An elaborate trifle that can be either beguiling or baffling depending on your point of view.
Marvelous to contemplate and changing slightly every time you see it.
The cast is first-rate, as is the cinematography by Irina Lubtchansky. But the story, co-written by Rivette, is paper-thin and stagy.
Audience Reviews for 36 vues du Pic Saint Loup (Around a Small Mountain)
Even with a relatively brief running time, Jacques Rivette is in no hurry with the deliberate pacing in his latest film, "Around a Small Mountain," as if he is unwilling to say farewell to the dying artform of the traveling circus, this one being sparsely attended. In fact, mortality hangs over the movie, not only with the circus' death defying acts but also in its signature Entrance that the movie keeps returning to. Another way of looking at the circus is like something out of the past like Vittorio's(Sergio Castellitto, also one of the screenwriters) gentlemanly behavior towards Kate(Jane Birkin) in coming to her rescue when she breaks down on the side of the road on the way to return to the circus for the first time in fifteen years.
Awkwardly stagy, frustratingly talky French drama about a chance encounter at a traveling circus. Often very tedious, but the final shot is a knock out.
