the two were married and split their work equally, with him responsible for the shooting and production, her controlling most of the editing and post-production duties and the two being equally responsible for the pre-production, texts and rehearsals (wiki); worked almost exclusively outside their homeland of France, most notably in Germany; their films, often adapted from theatrical or literary works, sometimes from political writings, are distinguished by their deliberate use of Brechtian distancing techniques and strong Marxist political overtones; aesthetically their work has been described as austere with minimal camera movements, long takes, simple, stark settings and restrained acting performances (New Wave Film).
