The Dirty Stories of Jean Eustache

Jean Eustache sits down with his grandmother Odette Robert—a key figure in his life and a substitute mother during his youth—for a feature-length conversation across a kitchen table. The two discuss the harshness of her rural upbringing, her troubled marriage, the deaths of her children, and the deprivations of World Wars I and II. The film was truncated to one hour for French television and never shown publicly in its full form during Eustache’s lifetime; the full version of Numéro Zéro was rediscovered and reconstructed in 2002.
