“Marguerite telle qu’en elle-même” by Dominique Auvray (France, 2002, 61 mins.)
One the most beautiful portraits of “Marguerite Duras, a lady of letters”, as the woman says. She also says that she makes films because she hasn’t the strength to do nothing. Beautiful, free, political, haunted by her past, swearing to forget nothing, Duras is always there. (In French with English subtitles)
