Around A Small Mountain
From legendary director Jacques Rivette (Va Savoir, The Duchess Of Langeais) comes a tale of lost love, chance encounters and the transformative power of art. On a winding mountain road, Vittorio stops to help Kate, whose car has broken down. After gallantly making the repair, without a single word spoken, he speeds off. When their paths cross again, Vittorio learns that Kate has returned to join her family's travelling circus after leaving under mysterious conditions many years ago. Intrigued by the story, Vittorio stays for the show, and the next one, and little by little, is ingratiated into the circus and the lives of its performers - all while trying to discover the secret that led to Kate's sudden departure.
