Je T’Aime, Je T’Aime
Dir. Alain Resnais. 1968, 91 mins. Restored 35mm. With Claude Riche, Anouk Ferjac, Olga Georges-Picot. Described by Raymond Durgnat as “science fiction tragedy in comic strip images,” Je t’aime, je t’aime is about a failed suicide who agrees to become a guinea pig for a time travel experiment. He finds himself trapped in an infinite series of moments revolving around a girlfriend whose death he may—or may not—have caused. Ahead of its time—and a clear influence on Cronenberg—this is one of Resnais’s most underrated films.
