Dimitri Weyl: a contemporary subjectivity’s emancipating move

This article will focus on the figure of adolescence developed and filmed by Jacques Audiard in De battre mon cœur s’est arrêté (2005) and look at the way in which image-movement and cinematographic writing join with psychoanalytic concepts in a mutually enriching way. This film depicts an adolescent problematic – in a race towards perpetual enjoyment – and allows us to feel the somatic-psychic movements that will enable this young man to emancipate himself from it.

Adolescence, 2015, 33, 1, 219-230.
