Guy Gilles

[Luc Chessel on Guy Gilles]: The films of Guy Gilles had multitudes of signs, without not even deciphering them.

Available to Watch

    EARTH LIGHT

    Guy Gilles France, 1970

    An achingly romantic vision of wanderlust and unsettled ennui, Earth Light is the most optimistic of Guy Gilles’s features. Like his earlier films, it’s a rhythmic, fragmented study in memory, and how the pleasures of the present moment can stave off the emotional dead-ends of a regretful past.

    LOVE AT SEA

    Guy Gilles France, 1964

    Buried treasure from the margins of the nouvelle vague, this poetic enigma sensitively captures young love through changing tides. Shot over three years in nostalgic color and shimmering black and white, Love at Sea is an elliptical marvel, and the first masterwork from French auteur Guy Gilles.

    WALL ENGRAVINGS

    Guy Gilles France, 1968

    A piercing portrait of doomed romance that trembles with intensity of feeling, Wall Engravings dances between the sensuality of the moment and the haunted halls of memory. A tale of passion and its melancholy ruins, every one of its 68 minutes feels fit to burst with Guy Gilles’ emotional abundance.
