Description June 1944, France is still under the German occupation. The writer and communist Robert Antelme, major figure of the Resistance, is arrested and deported. His young wife Marguerite Duras, writer and resistant, is torn by the anguish of not having news of her and her secret affair with her comrade Dyonis. She meets a French agent working at the Gestapo, Pierre Rabier, and, ready to do anything to find her husband, puts himself to the test of an ambiguous relationship with this troubled man, only to be able to help him. The end of the war and the return of the camps announce to Marguerite Duras the beginning of an unbearable wait, a slow and silent agony in the midst of the chaos of the Liberation of Paris.

I have to admit that I am a big fan of Jacques Rivette, and I enjoyed this film a lot. I don't know how it is that some people (who were not the intended audience) are so offended by it. In the first place, I don't understand why it is that Rivette is an "anti-feminist" (as one of the reviewers of this film has said). He was actually a feminist and he wrote the book on which the film is based. He has nothing against women, but he is against the idea that a woman's value is measured in the number of children she bears. If that is the case, why does the character of Anna want to have so many children? Why not have fewer? The problem with that kind of thinking is that it only succeeds in having one result: women who have more children are more attractive to men. I also wonder if those who dislike this film are not sexist. It's not as if it is a man who says to a woman, "Why do you want so many children?" and it's a woman who says to a man, "Why do you want so many children?" The film is not really about that. It's about a woman who has the desire to have children and the consequences that result from it. I think the main problem with the film is that it is too long. It has a great deal of information in it, but it is not really enough to have any impact on the viewer. The audience has to be able to follow the story. It is not a documentary about a woman's life and her child-bearing. I think that's why the film is a little long. I can understand why some people would like it, but I think it would have been better if it had been shorter.

I'm not an expert on this particular subject, but the facts I've read so far don't add up to a credible tale of a woman who was involved in a fatal car accident in New York City in 1963. She survived, and she died of a stroke six years later. The press was pretty positive on the story, and she even appeared in a TV documentary about it. But there's one big problem: She wasn't actually a passenger in the car, nor was she the driver. In fact, she was an accident victim herself. So what happened? The answer is that the woman in question was a nurse named Lillian Sargent, and she had her own mysterious story to tell about the incident. (She was a suspect, but the accident happened before she was charged.) It's not clear why the news media decided to publicize this story, but I think it was because they thought it would make it more interesting, since it's one of those stories that's easy to find, but not necessarily worth reporting. But it's not true, and Sargent is not the woman in question. (There's a fascinating interview with her son that's available on YouTube.) There are other stories that were published in the press, but they don't add up to the same thing. A few years ago, I saw a documentary about a woman named Debra Fleming, who also survived the accident, and the other woman she was involved with was a nurse named Patty Mallet. It's one of those stories that is easy to find, but not necessarily worth reporting. The point is that there are many stories about these women, but none of them adds up to the same thing.
