Synopsis

Six strangers—fleeing hordes of feared but never-glimpsed barbarians—seek refuge in the ancient home of a sorcerer and sorceress. After being asked to surrender their smartphones, they are treated to a deadpan philosophical odyssey involving magic, ghosts, painting, and an extended reenactment of an Arthurian romance as they confront 21st-century insecurities and anxieties.

Eugène Green

He was born in 1947 in New York, although he has always lived in Paris. With thirty years he founded the Théâtre de la Sapience, a company with which he tries to vindicate the modernity of the Baroque theater. He has published essays on cinema as well as compilations of short stories and poems. His film Toutes les Nuits (1999), inspired by a work by Flaubert, won the Delluc Prize for the best prima prima. The Cannes Film Festival included in his Directors’ Fortnight his feature film Le monde vivant (2003), and became a Locarno regular with Le nom du feu (2002), Le pont des Arts (2004), Les Signes (2005) and A Portuguese Religious (2009).
