A strong international cast is set against a Portuguese backdrop to explore the mysterious death of a young archaeologist and his last known contacts. Somewhere along the Portuguese coast, a man’s body washes ashore. Meanwhile, police detective Pinto finds a video camera in a nearby parked car with a tape of a young woman apparently unaware of being filmed. Like in one of Rivette’s films this work is an intellectual ball game in which the balls are lifted but also dropped. The ending? There are many truths! Beautiful pictures (camera: Christian Berger) and intellectual pleasure. read more


500 frames directly painted on material were black exposed. An intoxination of exploded colors. Sometimes the viewer constructs a picture in his brain you cannot see on the screen.
