Nenette and Boni

Synopsis

Denis’s style is at its most supple and sensuous in this impressionistic portrait of a spiky sibling relationship. Boni is a pizza maker whose crude erotic fantasies about the luscious wife of a doting baker are interrupted by the unexpected arrival of his 15-year-old sister Nenette - runaway, resentful, and irrevocably pregnant. She doesn’t want the baby, but it may be the catalyst to bring Boni out of his shell. Denis’s ace cinematographer Agnès Godard keeps the camera close and loose, capturing allusive details on the fly and evoking Marseilles with splashes of pastel color.
