Frontier of Dawn
La Frontière de l'aube Director: Philippe Garrel


Carole, a celebrity neglected by her husband, falls for Franēois, a young photographer. Returning from a business trip the husband surprises them, and the lovers have to end their relationship. Carole gradually drifts into madness and commits suicide.

One year later, a few hours before his wedding, Franēois has a vision. It's Carole, calling him from the other world.

"While I was writing it, the film was called "Heaven of the Angels", an expression I found in "Blanche ou l'oubli" by Louis Aragon. I liked it a lot, but I was put off by the neo-Catholic side. And one night, at four in the morning, I came up with FRONTIER OF DAWN, which evoked both the suicide and the ghost themes. I made the film with this title in mind, and it gave me the key to each scene."
