Diptyque

France, 1967 (MIFF 1969, Programme 38)

Director: Walerian Borowczyk

A film in two parts, representing two views of life. The first half, in black and white, presents an unvar­nished record of an old man, almost a hundred years old. The second is in colour, and will be a consolation to those who were shocked by the bitter austerity of the first part.
