Hécate

Daniel Schmid, France, Switzerland, 1982o

s
vBack

Set amid the European community in an unspecified North African country, a colony on the verge of nationalism just before the war. And colonized is what happens to a French diplomat, Julien Rochelle, when he meets the mysterious beauty Clothilde de Watteville. Schmid 's favorite axiom, that love is projection, never had such a thorough airing. Is Clothilde really the wife of a French official now holed up in Siberia? Or is she Hecate, goddess of black magic and devourer of the Arab boys she meets far from the European quarter?

Das US-Model Lauren Hutton und der französische Star Bernard Giraudeau spielen die Hauptrollen, angesiedelt ist die Geschichte in einer schwülen Diplomatenwelt in Marokko. Ein Nichts, aber von Schmid (und seinem Kameramann Renato Berta) in eine soghafte Bilderwelt getaucht. Das ist schwer zu beschreiben – aber das Motto des Films lautet sowieso: «Worte kommen immer zu früh – oder zu spät.» (Auszug)
