Jean-Claude Carrière

“Buñuel was [also] a great observer but he taught me how to use the imagination within first. How to look deep down inside ourselves. In any given situation and to take it as far as possible.”

    THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE

    Luis Buñuel France, 1972

    What secrets lurk inside a group of wealthy sophisticates who only want a nice, pleasant dinner party? Luis Buñuel’s Oscar-winning classic is one of his signature films: a fiendishly witty comedy bouncing through reality, dreams, faith, sex, and revolution with the lightest and cheekiest touch.

    THAT OBSCURE OBJECT OF DESIRE

    Luis Buñuel France, 1977

    Luis Buñuel’s final film and thus his last collaboration with Jean-Claude Carrière wryly belongs in the canon of “male humiliation” cinema. Uniquely featuring two different actresses in the same role, this impiously perverse swan song provocatively satirizes human desire and patriarchal hypocrisy.

    DIARY OF A CHAMBERMAID

    Luis Buñuel France, 1964

    In Luis Buñuel’s attack on provincial French values, Jeanne Moreau’s pitch-perfect performance exudes a mock-obedience and petulant sensuality, deliciously unmasking bourgeois hypocrisy. Keep your eyes peeled for a droll cameo from scriptwriter Jean-Claude Carrière as a flustered country priest!

    LOVER FOR A DAY

    Philippe Garrel France, 2017

    In this lithe romantic triangle, Philippe Garrel shows us he only needs the barest means—plus 35mm B&W film—to tell a story. Co-scripted with his regular collaborator Jean-Claude Carrière, the film oozes desire and intensity, as two women (one played by his daughter Esther) find out what love means.

    THE SALT OF TEARS

    Philippe Garrel France, 2020

    Philippe Garrel’s exquisite new film—about a rake’s wayward desires and inability to truly respect the women in his life—is a gem of a moral tale from the post-New Wave legend. Premiering in the Berlinale’s competition, it is co-written by the late Jean-Claude Carrière and shot on luminous 35mm.
