"In 1972, Nico sang and shouted in the New Mexico desert, in the snowy plains of Iceland, and in the charred landscapes of Egypt. Philippe Garrel shot La Cicatrice intérieure as the ultimate film-trip to the most desolate territories of the world. This masterwork's echo is heard even in Gus Van Sant (Gerry) and Vincent Gallo (The Brown Bunny), a mythical love story between a gifted filmmaker and his ghostly icon." - Les Inrockuptibles
"You can't ask questions of La Cicatrice intérieure you just ave to enjoy watching it, in teh same way you'd enjoy taking a walk in the desert. Teh film is a record of what was going through my head at the time of the shoot; it can consist only of traces and marks." - Phillipe Garrel
With: Nico, Philippe Garrel, Pierre Clementi, Christian Päffgen, Daniel Pommereulle, Balthazar Clémenti, Jean-Pierre Kalfon
