The turbulent love affair between a fuddy-duddy history teacher and a free-spirited hippie girl leads to drug abuse and domestic violence.
Anna Karina released her directorial debut film Living Together at Cannes Film Festival-Critics Week in 1973. She couldn’t get any funding although she was a top star, so she filmed it at her own house, cooked for her staff, and paid for almost all the expenses. It is a romantic film, but its structure completely overturns the classical narrative order. It starts from the happiest moment of love and heads to a catastrophe, rather than the familiar structure of starting with a conflict of two people who get a happy ending. The film depicts the life of a young woman who transforms into an independent subject from someone who was buried under the free flow of the time, giving a glimpse into the director’s psyche as she moves through the glory of the French New Wave. With this work, Karina proves that she was a special creator who plucked up the courage to make her own voice heard, rather than settling for the life of a star actress. (Sung MOON)
