"The Mystery of Oberwald"
Directed by Michaelangelo Antonioni
A daring, previously unreleased film experiment, shot
by Antonioni on video, then transferred to 35mm. Based on the melodramatic
play (on which Cocteau based his Eagle Has Two Heads), the central
character, the Queen (the great Monica Vitti), is in hiding ten years after
the assassination of her husband, Prince Ferdinand. She gives refuge to a
fleeing anarchist poet who happens to resemble her dead husband and becomes
her "angel of death" and her lover. Italian with English subtitles.
