Seuls

Switzerland  ·  1981  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  100'  ·  o.v. French

Jean, aged 35, happens to find a picture in a photo booth. This leads to unusual encounters and strange romantic relationships… From the lake to the mountains, this lyrical work tells the story of a man’s interior journey as he revisits his memory. “It’s a film about the symbolic order of love; as the other one says, the unconscious has its own language, and speaks the language of cinema (…). Basically, it’s a kind of fantastical thriller about Oedipus, narrated by the protagonist’s great grandson, a child of electronics and vodka-cola” (Francis Reusser). The film’s premiere was held at the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes in 1981, and it also screened in Locarno and San Sebastián.

Digitized by Francis Reusser with support from the SUISSIMAGE Cultural Foundation and RTS, in partnership with the Cinémathèque suisse.
