The Films of Luc Moullet: Anatomy of a Relationship & Genesis of a Meal
Luc Moullet, original member of the French New Wave and long-time critic for Cahiers du Cinema, directed these two distinctive documentaries that resonate with his absurdist view and maverick vision. ANATOMY OF A RELATIONSHIP is a daring, delirious dissection of the dilemmas of two intellectuals who cant quite make their sex life work. Moullet stars as himself in this fearless confessional film about his partnership and relationship with his wife. GENESIS OF A MEAL involves an economic comparison from production to consumption of a can of Senegalese tuna, a French omelet, an Ecuadorian banana, and a reel of 35mm filmwhich are all staples in Moullets "diet." "A powerful non-comic documentary," claims Jonathan Rosenbaum of the Chicago Reader.
