  • The Time and the Room

    1992. France. Directed by Patrice Chéreau. With Anouk Grinberg, Pascal Greggory, Marc Betton, Bulle Ogier. Chéreau, an internationally acclaimed director of theater, opera, and film (Queen Margot, Those Who Love Me Can Take the Train, Son Frère), adapts his briskly paced, controversial stage production of Botho Strauß's disquieting and absurdist play, using the same stellar cast. In an imposing Parisian apartment, world-weary Julius and Olaf pass the time gazing onto the street life below. They are suddenly visited by Marie Steuber, who thinks back on the men she met, loved, lost, and betrayed, and, in doing so, reflects upon the woman she once was and has now become. These various Pirandellian incarnations—vengeful Medea and naïve coquette, victim and goddess—make their entrances in seemingly disconnected and enigmatic, yet altogether fascinating, ways. In French; English subtitles. 95 min.
