inspired by an essay of Jean-Luc Nancy

L'intrus/ Der Eindringling, translated by Alexander Garcia Düttmann, Berlin: Merve 2000, pp. 6-51

During the shooting of "Trouble every day" Claire Denis read the autobiographic essay "The intruder" by J.L. Nancy. At that time, Denis had already made "Vers Nancy", a 10 minutes long both, documentary and fiction, piece on Nancy.

She approached him, if he would agree to her plan to make a film of "The intruder" fictionalizing what is reported there, Nancy's experience of a heart transplantation, the exposure of his body to an exteme operation and an extreme displacement by pain, medication and de-immunisation.

In his brief essay Nancy describes this experience as sudden and forced confrontation with the presence of the other in what seemed to be of himself and of his own so far, his heart: an encounter with deconstruction, delimitation and immigration in his own body.
