Eric Duvivier, La Femme 100 têtes (1967), after Max Ernst collage novel from 1929

"The visual poem belongs to a certain degree to the ancestors of cinema. The desire to bring it to the screen seems only natural. (…) Eric Duvivier’s attempt is a considerable success and I’m pleased to welcome it as the best surrealist film offered to us in thirty years or more." (

André Pieyre de Mandiargues)
