Variations sur Marilou

Félix Dufour-Laperrière

France 2007. 6 Min.
Color. 35mm. F (Song)

Another lascivious Serge Gainsbourg song about the uncertain eroticism of a probably far too young woman, created as a sophisticated play of words and hints, and read against the grain by Félix Dufour-Laperrière: the song suddenly stops and the wind blows through the dreary branches, as the traces of a woman become visible, drawn with a few basic lines, appearing frighteningly fragile. For a few moments, we have the feeling that we are staring into the cold tranquility of the sea, through clear ice, covered only by a fine layer of snow.  (om)
