Demain?

The short, passionate life of Uruguyan poet Delmira Agustini is stylishly evoked in this film by Christine Laurent, longtime script collaborator of Jacques Rivette. Elegant, erotic and playful, the film contrasts its heroine’s turbulent, tormented psyche with free and graceful filmmaking to create something mysterious and wonderful as a poem. The beautiful Laure de Clermont-Tonnere (The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec) is affecting and compelling as Delmira, tortured by her own genius.

Around a Small Mountain

On a winding mountain road, Vittorio gallantly helps Kate with her stalled car, and without a single word exchanged, speeds off. Later in town, he learns that Kate has returned to join her family’s traveling circus after leaving under mysterious conditions many years ago. Intrigued by her story, Vittorio stays for the show, and the next one, and little by little, is ingratiated into the circus and the lives of its performers — all the while trying to discover the secret that led to Kate’s sudden departure.
