Les Derniers jours du monde

Robinson, appropriately named as we will soon discover, is on vacation in Biarritz with his wife. What follows is the story behind the loss of his arm, a story that becomes increasingly bizarre and eventually apocalyptic, leading us down a narrative path of labyrinthine complexity. The resulting film is an extraordinary feat of imagination and daring, set against the backdrop of a world on the verge of destruction. Alors que s’annonce la fin du monde, Robinson Laborde se remet peu à peu de l’échec d’une aventure sentimentale pour laquelle il s’était décidé à quitter sa femme. Malgré l’imminence du désastre, et peut-être pour mieux y faire face, il s’élance dans une véritable odyssée amoureuse qui l’entraîne sur les routes de France et d’Espagne.

Love is the Perfect Crime

Marc, in his 40s, is a professor of literature at the University of Lausanne. Still a bachelor — and still living with his sister Marianne in a huge, isolated chalet that they inherited when they were very young — he carries on one love affair after another with his students. Winter has almost ended when one of his most brilliant students, Barbara, suddenly disappears. Two days later, Marc meets Barbara’s mother, Anna, who wants to find out more about her vanished daughter.
