LA JETTATURA

Screening room

Status: Completed

Director(s): Philippe Garrel

Long synopsis : Following the death of his wife, Carole, from an overdose, Fran§ois has resolved to make an anti-drug film. In Lucie, a young actress with whom he is besotted, Fran§ois has his star, but cannot find a producer willing to invest. A wealthy friend, Chas, offers to fund the project in return for a favour. He wants two suitcases, both packed with heroin, smuggled into France. Desperate, Fran§ois agrees. The job is done and filming begins in Amsterdam. Her character a thinly veiled portrait of Fran§ois’ dead wife, Lucie begins to break under the strain of his demands. Chas, who has taken on the role of producer, and his girlfriend Zsazsa, are on hand to offer her narcotic solace. Obsessed by his work, Fran§ois is blind to the tragedy unfolding around him.
