he film follows the traces of a woman and her life from France to Germany to exile in Argentina, the filmmaker reconstructs like an archeologist the various stages of the exile and the uncertainty. The result is a maelstrom of associative images that also leave room for the untold. In addition, Floros Floridis’ complex compositions and the suggestive images of cameraman Johann Feindt emphasize the fragility of the tale. Memories and passages from letters merge into the touching narrative of several broken biographies. At the same time, the director reflects on the fragmentary nature of memory. “What is remembered, what is forgotten? And why?”
