Overview

Director Arnaud de Pallières presents an experimental three-part film designed to stimulate the intellect and inspire reflection on the past. The first part tells the story of the last living Holocaust survivor, who is nearing the end of life and regrets not leaving behind an official record of the horrors he witnessed during the dark years of World War II. Later, a young historian researching a concentration camp in Drancy is shocked to discover that the site now houses an unwelcoming housing project called La Muette (the Silent). The trilogy winds to a close with the story of a ship's captain who recalls the time he ventured up an uncharted river towards an undiscovered civilization.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Eleanor Mannikka
This first and experimental film by D'Arnaud des Pallières apparently attempts to address the problem of how to explain to the next generation why Hitler's extermination of Jews and gypsies took place and found support inside and outside of Germany. Yet as the director notes, the images and the three different stories told in this film are not meant to go together -- a fact which leaves most viewers confused and in the dark about what all the dry, intellectual ramblings of the script really mean.
