Elvire Jouvet 40 by Benoît Jacquot( Visual )

16 editions published between 1986 and 2013 in French and Undetermined and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benoît Jacquot filme l'ingénieuse entreprise de Brigitte Jaques qui transpose pour la scène sept leçons données par Louis Jouvet, au conservatoire en 1940, à l'élève Claudia s'exerçant sur le personnage d'Elvire de Dom Juan. Les leçons sont extraites de "Molière et la comédie classique", ouvrage de Louis Jouvet édité chez Gallimard en 1965. À partir du spectacle créé en 1986 au théâtre national de Strasbourg, Benoît Jacquot signe un film éblouissant sur le théâtre et l'apprentissage du métier d'acteur. Philippe Clévenot, projeté dans le personnage de Louis Jouvet aux côtés de son élève Maria de Meideros, exhume l'art et la méthode du maître qui s'attache sans relâche à commenter Molière, en même temps qu'il expose avec lyrisme la pratique de la diction, la respiration, la situation dramatique et "le sentiment". Le film fixe dans le mouvement la rencontre fugitive et énigmatique du mot et du corps. Rencontre d'autant plus boulversante que la guerre sépare le maître de l'élève. Claudia, après avoir reçu le premier prix de sa classe au conservatoire, est interdite de scène du fait de ses origines juives; Jouvet est conduit à s'exiler
