“An excellent introduction to the cinema of Jacques Rivette by his one-time assistant and admirer, Claire Denis. Rivette is shown in his favourite milieu – the cafés, streets, and Métro stations of Paris – talking with the great film critic Serge Daney about the early days of the nouvelle vague , about art and ethics, their talk interspersed with clips from Rivette’s films. Rivette proves that Denis’ punning reference to him as ‘le veilleur’ – the night watchman – is more than apt; there are few cinephiles more voracious.” – Cinematheque Ontario
