JDIFF: THE CAPTIVE

Director: Chantal Akerman

France - Belgium • 2000 • 118 min


Simon (Stanislas Merhar) lives a secluded but privileged existence with his lover Ariane (Sylvie Testud) in his wealthy grandmother’s Paris apartment. Simon’s social and emotional isolation creates a climate of obsessive behaviour. Or is his growing obsession the cause of his isolation? Encouraging Ariane to experiment sexually, he becomes increasingly paranoid as he senses her ever-distancing orbit.

Chantal Akerman will participate in a public interview at this screening.
