(2000, 118 minutes)
Director: Chantal Akerman
Based on the fifth volume of Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, this film explores a vision of love as possession. The beguiled Simon (Stanislas Merhar) pursues Ariane (Sylvie Testud), though suspects she is engaged in an illicit affair with Andrée (Olivia Bonamy). His obsession manifests in a jealous mania that questions who is captive—the lover or the loved.
