Pedro Costa – Où gît votre sourire enfoui? (2001)

Pedro Costa’s Où gît votre sourire enfoui?, the director’s preferred feature-length version of an episode of the French TV series Cinéma, de notre temps, was the best film I saw in 2002 (like many on this list, at the Rotterdam Film Festival). A documentary on the stern filmmakers Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet editing a version of Sicilia!, it gives a remarkable insight into the dynamics of an extraordinary couple who fuse art and life, and the intricate materialities of their filmmaking practice. It has a perfect beginning, a perfect ending, and is one of the only films that actually carves out its own, crystalline style from the currently faddish possibilities of “digital cinema.”
