The Creatures

Paris: Parc Film, 1966. Archive of 46 vintage reference stills for the 1966 French film. Each photograph numbered using two different numbering systems in holograph marker and pencil. A single photograph shows director Varda with Catherine Deneuve on the set.

A writer and his pregnant wife, mute from a car accident, move to a remote village while he works on a novel. Fantasy and reality, fact and fiction, begin to blend together as he transforms the villagers into characters in his story. In his 1969 review, Roger Ebert called The Creatures "a complex and nearly hypnotic study of the way fact is made into fiction. It seems to operate on many levels, but in fact it operates on only one, illustrating how fantasy, reality and style are simultaneously kept suspended in the mind of a creative writer."

Three photographs 10.75 x 8 inches. Very Good plus, with light scratches.

Remaining photographs 4.75 x 3.5 inches. A few photographs lightly worn, else Near Fine overall.
