Laure de Clermont, Marc Ruchmann, Teresa Madruga, Adriano Luz, Beatriz Batarda / Fiction / French
The short, passionate life of Uruguyan poet Delmira Agustini is stylishly evoked in this film by Christine Laurent, longtime script collaborator of Jacques Rivette. Elegant, erotic and playful, the film contrasts its heroine’s turbulent, tormented psyche with free and graceful filmmaking to create something mysterious and wonderful as a poem. The beautiful Laure de Clermont-Tonnere (The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec) is affecting and compelling as Delmira, tortured by her own genius.
