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.
Among the rare meetings of dance and the silver screen, the films ‘Solo’ and ‘à Mains Nues’ form an exceptional diptych, fashioned with the finesse and generosity of an authentic perspective.”
