Description

Details

"Philippe Garrel's cinema, far from being pious, tends, at this period, towards a prophetic, inspired, inflated gospel." - Thierry Jousse, Les Cahiers du Cinema

"I believe my point of view on the Christian myth is quite clear in The Virgin's Bed that I made a little later in 1969. It is a non-violent parable in which Zouzou incarnates both Mary and Mary Magdalene while Pierre Clementi incarnates a discouraged Christ who throws down his arms in face of world cruelty. In spite of its allegorical nature, the film contains a denunciation of the police repression of 1968, which was generally well understood by by viewers at the time." - Philippe Garrel

"I tried to speak to them with words, but I could not speak to them." - Pierre Clementi, The Virgin's Bed
