Le Combat Dans L'île Review


Extraordinary
Hemorrhaging lost masterpieces as if it were a newly uncovered bounty of Nazi gold, the 1960s go one more with Alain Cavalier's magnificent Le Combat Dans L'île, literally translated as "The Combat on the Island." Loosed from the distribution impound lot, it comes not long after the rediscovery of Godard's sublime and spontaneous Made in USA and the globe-trotting opus Army of Shadows; films made by two directors to which Cavalier's film was meant to serve as a blithe rebuke.

Before long, Jules is begging Jim to take her -- anything to ensure her happiness.
