Jacques Rivette's shortest film.

In 1995, Jacques Rivette was one of forty directors who contributed a segment entitled Une Aventure de Ninon to the film Lumière and Company. Each director contributed a 52-second segment shot with an original Lumiere cinematograph. the following is a transcription of the subtitles of Rivette's comments on completion of his short.

Rivette: It's too short. Usually we have to cut, but here it needs to be longer.Let's call Martine to tell her.

Unidentified: It's your shortest film.

Rivette: Precisely, it's too short. I can't make a long enough film.
