‘The spectacle of this shapeless wonder needs to be seen to be believed. Amalric is building himself an extremely impressive directorial oeuvre, and this might just be his crowning achievement. And Balibar is something else in the lead, an example of an actor not just inhabiting the skin of another person, but exhuming her from history and engaging in a precise piano duet.’

‘An actress, Brigitte, is playing Barbara in a film that soon begins shooting. Brigitte works on her character, her voice, the songs and scores, the imitation of her gestures, her knitting, the lines to learn. Things move along. The character grows inside her. Invades her, even… Yves, the director, is also working – via encounters, archival footage, the music. He seems inhabited and inspired by her… But by whom? The actress or Barbara?’
