Touring a repossessed chateau, a film location scout falls for its flirtatious representative, who recounts the story of an influential book written there. But is their connection for real, or just a projection of the book's characters?
Around the Sun is a beautiful film set in a chateau bathed in the autumnal mists of northern France. The endless possibilities of plot - it was like this, but it could have been like that or like that - serve as a metaphor for the theory of parallel universes proposed by the 17th century polymath who once lived in the chateau. A beautifully shot and thought-provoking film that leaves one wanting to know more.
