Sample text

Among work by former New Wave directors, Eric Rohmer’s Perceval le Gallois (1979) was highly stylised and idiosyncratic. But there was also François Truffaut’s L’Histoire d’Adèle H. (1975), starring Isabelle Adjani as Victor Hugo’s daughter, which had, like Les Sœurs Brontë, revisited the nineteenth century via a ‘real’ literary family, and with which Téchiné’s film may have been unfavourably compared (Jones 1997: 69). Téchiné’s project was therefore an unusual one, seemingly out of step even with his own – then limited – corpus of films.

However, the differences from Souvenirs d’en France are clear. Much of this is due to a changed social and political climate. Although it would be reductive to ‘read off’ a direct link with the election of the socialist François Mitterrand to the Presidency in 1981, the year of the film’s production, it is clear that the political climate in France had changed since the 1970s. Despite the persistence of mass unemployment, the intellectual and political décrispation (relaxation) of the 1980s was welcomed by many artists and intellectuals who had opposed Gaullism and Giscard.
