With Bulle Ogier, Pascale Ogier.

A new 35mm print of Jacques Rivette's Le pont du nord (courtesy of The Film Desk) will be shown at BAM from March 22 to 28.

A puzzle, a hallucinatory cinephilic fever dream, and a spellbinding, through-the-looking-glass thriller as only French New Wave titan Rivette could make, Le Pont du Nord plays like the darker, conspiracy-theory-obsessed cousin of the director’s beloved Céline and Julie Go Boating. This tale of two women follows ex-con Marie (Bulle Ogier), who is just out of prison, and Baptiste (Bulle’s real-life daughter Pascale) for a surreal, labyrinthine odyssey through a wintry Paris, replete with mysterious clues, codes, traps, and spies.

Opens in the U.S. March 22, 2013 (New York). This film may not be shown in all US cities, please check your local listings for exact showtimes and places.
