N. a pris les dés… (1971)

A reshuffling of Grillet’s Eden and After, the title an anagram of that movie, and the scenes rearranged in a similar random fashion as an experiment to see what new story or structure emerges. A man narrates, throws the dice, and we see the random scenes associated with the throw, mixed with several out-takes from that movie as new details emerge. In particular, scenes of the students in the club are spliced with the hallucinatory and fantasy scenes in Tunisia to draw parellels. That’s the theory. In practice, this is a nonsensical movie made even more nonsensical in an exercise of pure whim, experimentation and curiosity.
