The Book of Mary (1985)
About The Book of Mary
Anne-Marie Miéville, frequent collaborator of Jean-Luc Godard, made this partner piece to Godard’s own ‘Je vous salue, Marie’. Marie, eleven years old, is experiencing difficult times. Her parents will separate. The perception of her universe is profoundly disturbed. This exacting portrait of a child immersed in her books, music and dancing casts a dispassionate yet touching eye on the girl’s reaction to the new upheaval in her life.
