“This deceptively slim volume condenses a decade worth of vigorous activity into a few brief, yet enormously rich encounters.”—Sight & Sound

Introduction, afterword and footnotes by Cyril Béghin.
Translation by Nicholas Elliott.

Three dialogues between Marguerite Duras and Jean-Luc Godard from 1979, 1980 and 1987.

“The two demonstrate a profound shared passion, a way of literally being one with a medium and speaking about it with a dazzling lyricism interspersed with dryly ironic remarks, fueled by a conviction that inspires them to traverse history. Their point of intersection is obvious. Duras, a writer, is also a filmmaker, and Godard, a filmmaker, has maintained a distinctive relationship with literature, writing and speech.”—Cyril Béghin
