Strands of disparate lives intertwine amid the ebb and flow of 1970s Paris in this epic French new wave reflection on reality, perception and meaning.

Box art for Out 1

Uniquely ambitious, Rivette's film (technically a serial) spends nearly 13 hours stitching paranoia, loneliness, comedy, and mystical symbolism into a crazy quilt big enough to cover a generation.

Paris, April 13th 1970. Two theater groups each rehearse avant-garde adaptations of plays by Aeschylus. A young deaf-mute begs for change in cafés while playing the harmonica. A young woman seduces men in order to rob them. As a conspiracy develops, the protagonists' stories start to intertwine.
