Rarities (past events)Repertory Series ArchiveThe Good Works of Claire Denis (Part 1)


2004 • dir Claire Denis w/Michel Subor, Grégoire Colin, Katarina Golubeva • 130min • 35mm

An emotionally cold man leaves the safety of his Alpine home to seek a heart transplant and, perhaps his estranged son in Denis’ elliptical, enigmatic, and philosophical film.

“Denis is one of cinema’s greatest narrative poets, and The Intruder, the story of an adventurer, is her most adventurous cinematic poem.”
– Amy Taubin, Film Comment

“Denis composes a majestic dream book of shots and sequences.”
– Wesley Morris, Boston Globe

“Never has Denis demanded so much from audiences as with this shimmering enigma, at once intimate and epic, but it’s worth the effort and then some.”
– Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
