Example text

A friend had asked them to be extras, or an aged uncle had taken them to visit a studio. This was not, however, the case with Jean Vigo, who was one of the first filmmakers by vocation. He was a spectator who fell in love with films, began to see more and still more movies, established a film club to bring better films to Nice, and was soon making them. " He bought a camera and produced on his own his first short subject, A propos de Nice. It has often been remarked that the line of Zero de Conduite is broken by gaps that are usually blamed on the hellish working schedule.

He asks his young wife, Skverine (Simone Simon), to intervene with a "big shot," a sort of godfather whom she knew as a teenager and who was a great friend of her 41 A JEAN RENOIR FESTIVAL mother's. When Siverine returns, everything has been fixed up, but when Roubaud realizes what the price is, he goes mad with jealousy and works out revenge which will end with him killing the godfather in front of Siverine on the Paris-LeHavre train. On the train the murderous pair have been noticed by Jacques Lantier (Jean Gabin), a railroad employee.

I believe, to the contrary, that failure is talent. T o succeed is to fail. I wish to defend the proposition that Abel Gance is the failed auteur of failed films. I am convinced that there is no great filmmaker who does not sacrifice something. Renoir will sacrifice anything-plot, dialogue, technique- 35 ABEL GANCE to get a better performance from an actor. Hitchcock sacrifices believability in order to present an extreme situation that he has chosen in advance. Rossellini sacrifices the connection between movement and light to achieve greater warmth in his interpreters.
