I was given the opportunity to write about Jacques Rozier’s Adieu Philippine in this month’s edition of Sight & Sound. Rozier is sorely under-seen outside of his native France, so it was a great honour to be given a platform like that to promote his work.
If you’re interested in seeking out the films of Jacques Rozier a French box-set collecting Adieu Philippine, Du côté d’Orouët, Les Naufragés de l’île de la Tortue and Maine océan, alongside a couple of early shorts is available from Potemkine. English subtitles are included. I’m hopeful that a fully-restored Blu-ray box-set will be along one day.
