Directed by Chantal Akerman | 2000

With Sylvie Testud, Stanislas Merhar, Olivia Bonamy

“Inflected with an almost operatic intensity, the film transcends/eschews naturalism to create an almost timeless parable.”
—Time Out London

A reclusive young man’s (Merhar) infatuation with a curiously passive woman (Testud) traps them in a cycle of unfulfilled desire as he obsessively tails her every move à la Jimmy Stewart’s detective in Vertigo. Akerman’s mesmerizing take on Proust's La Prisonnière “transcends any notion of adaptation and touches on the distance between lovers who are doomed to dream apart” (The New York Times).
