1982

"The most alive movie I saw at the festival (New York Film Festival 1981). Leaves me with a whole album of indelible images and unnerving emotions." – Jonathan Rosenbaum

"One of the Year's Ten Best." – Cahiers du Cinema

"One of the Years's Ten Best. Of all the survivors of the French New Wave, Jacques Rivette remains the most thoroughly unpredictable (Godard is predictably unpredictable). His critics charge him with changing his theories too quickly from film to film, but it seems to me that an inconsistency of approach is more of a virtue than an evil in the search for new ways of making movies. Le pont du nord is a loose, funny, largely improvised film in the form of a game, with Bulle Ogier (as a freshly released convict) and her daughter Pascale (as a stern teenager who imagines herself a kung fu knight) playing the map of Paris as if it were a "snakes-and-ladders" board.  Rivette challenges the audience to figure out the rules - and the solution lies not in fantasy but in hard social, economic, and political reality." -  Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader (pdf)
