Editing in La Glace a Trois Faces

by Kate Fortmueller

La Glace a Trois Faces has four parts. The first three parts are about Louis and three women, the fourth segment demonstrates his inability to love any of the women. In this final segment Louis races in his car and eventually crashes and dies. Note the editing in this sequence. There are a number of repeated shots that create a rhythm and a mood, but do not follow precise causality or attempt to move the narrative forward.
