Wonderful 'who-done-it & why' Bunel-esque movie!
This wonderful 'who-done-it'& why' Bunel-esque movie is a hit at the 2004 SAN FRANCISCO International Film Festival!
Everyone in the audience loved this sureal quirky mystery about greed with the beautiful Elsa Zylberstein playing the 'insane' Livia who is tracked down by an escaped 'mental patient' Pointpoirot played wonderfully by Bernard Giraudeau.
The director is a master of story telling combining surealism, comedy, suspense and heartfelt moments.
After the movie, the beautiful Ms. Zylberstein provided a wonderful commentary about the film making process, the director, and her role . Especially pertinent was the explanation of the symbolism of the 'dinner party' to actual events during the military dictatorship in Chile.
Incredible film, which hopefully will be distributed and later available on DVD! (I want it in my DVD collection!)
