Jacques Rivette
Jacques Rivette

French film director, screenwriter and film critic Jacques Rivette wrote and directed twenty feature films, eight short films and a documentary. Rivette was a member of the French New Wave. In 1956 Rivette made the short film Le Coup du Berger, which François Truffaut credited as enacting the New Wave movement. His feature film debut Paris Belongs to Us was a key part of the movement. In 1969 he established his cinematic style with L'Amour fou, where he worked with large groups of actors and lengthy improvisation. This technique led to the thirteen-hour Out 1. Some of his other films include Celine and Julie Go Boating, Gang of Four and La Belle Noiseuse. Many of his films have long running times; Rivette edited shorter versions of five of them and considered some to be entirely new films with different meanings. (Full list...)
