Cast: Juliet Berto, Bulle Ogier, Jean Babilée Rivette followed up his celebrated Celine and Julie Go Boating with another fantasy about two women, this time plunging headlong into dream logic. Two goddesses battle in contemporary Paris over a magic diamond that will allow the winner to remain on Earth. Rapturous and enigmatic, Duelle has frequently been cited as a precursor to the work of David Lynch.
