    Nico, Dominique Sanda, Anita Pallenberg and painter Frédéric Pardo drift through Garrel's silent cine-poem, accompanied by a dreamy score from German krautrock group Ash Ra Tempel. "Snapshot of a discordant generation. The cradle? Art (Pardo's painting, Nico's poetry, the Langlois Museum). The crystal? The cold (Anita Pallenberg's powder, the silence before suicide). Every life is a demolition process" (Philippe Azoury).
