After the wonderful Solo (2004), Thierry Knauff throws a new bridge between dance and cinema. Freely inspired by a text of Joseph Noiret and a choreography of his daughter Michèle Noiret, à Mains Nues is a film-poem of a singular beauty. With shadow and light for partners, Michèle Noiret approachs, fears and confronts herself with worlds borns from her own dance.
