PARIS NOUS APPARTIENT Movie by Jacques Rivette - 1961 - Film à énigme - 2h20 À Paris, au cours de l'été 1957, en dépit de difficultés matérielles, un groupe de jeunes gens se prépare à monter Périclès, prince de Tyr, de Shakespeare. Cependant, les répétitions sont troublées par divers événements. Anne, venue rejoindre son frère Pierre, perturbe le groupe en flirtant avec l'un des garçons. Dans le même temps, Philip, un Américain victime du maccarthysme, suscite l'angoisse au sein de la troupe en évoquant le complot qui a entraîné le suicide d'un compositeur espagnol. Anne Goupil is a literature student in Paris in 1957. Her elder brother, Pierre, takes her to a friend's party where the guests include Philip Kaufman, an expatriate American escaping McCarthyism, and Gerard Lenz, a theatre director who arrives with the mysterious woman Terry. The talk at the party is about the apparent suicide of their friend Juan, a Spanish activist who had recently broken up with Terry. Philip warns Anne that the forces that killed Juan will soon do the same to Gerard. Gerard is trying to rehearse Shakespeare's "Pericles", although he has no financial backing. Anne takes a part in the play to help Gerard, and to try to discover why Juan died. Now regarded as one of the pioneering efforts in the French "New Wave" movement, Paris Belongs to Us was also the first feature-length effort of director (and former critic and film theorist) Jacques Rivette.
