The Philosopher and the Moviemaker. A Discussion of the Cinematic - Image The present article focuses on two topics underlying the lecture given by Maurice Merleau-Ponty in 1945 at the Institut des Hautes Études Cinématographiques, in Paris. One is the reflection on the peculiarities of filmic expression and cinematic image; the other, the convergence between the inspiration of cinema and that of philosophy, which Merleau-Ponty sees as a significant feature of his time: a convergence which the cinema of the nouvelle vague was also to acknowledge and which Christian Metz was to confirm retrospectively. Moreover, in developing both topics, the author finds a way to interpret Merleau-Ponty’s lecture as an undeclared polemical response to Henri Bergson’s famous negative judgement on cinema.
