Marguerite Duras - Agatha et les lectures illimitées (1981)
Incest between a sister and a brother by the author of India Song deals with the remembrance of an unfulfilled desire. "Incest cannot be seen from outside. It burns everything down and then there is nothing left, the earth is flat but the door remains open. Thus passes an afternoon in March: a young hunter rows along the river. He looks at his sister a last time and carries away her picture in the desert cataracts." Marguerite Duras.
“A crystalline expression of Duras’s central themes – memory, desire, lost or forbidden love – Agatha stars Duras’s companion Yann Andréa and Bulle Ogier as a brother and sister. They arrange to meet in the Hôtel des Roches Noires in the seaside village of Trouville because the hotel reminds them of the house they grew up in. There, engulfed by an expanse of sea and sky which turns into a confluence of memory, they wander through the château of endless windows and mirrors and empty rooms, finally confronting their incestuous desires. Among Duras’s most radical experiments, Agatha not only separates image and text, but also concludes with a bravura, sustained use of black frame over which the denouement of the tale is narrated.” _ James Quandt.
