France, Italy, 2014
Drama

Synopsis

French architect Alexandre sets off for Italy to complete his long-gestating book. Accompanied by his wife, Aliénor who feels their relationship is slipping away, he is on a mission to renew his artistic and spiritual inspiration by basking in the architectural wonders of the 17th century.

Our take

The one-of-a-kind Eugène Green (Le monde vivant, Le fils de Joseph) chases the concept of sapience all the way to Italy in this wise, wistful drama—an ode to Baroque architecture and an old, perhaps lost, civilization. Starring Belgian actor (and Dardennes Brother-regular) Fabrizio Rongione.
