On the imaginary island of Orfales, an eight-year-old girl, Almitra, meets a political prisoner under house arrest, Mustapha; and an exceptionally strong friendship is formed. The film, based on Kahlil Gibran’s book The Prophet, is divided into nine parts, each part directed by a different director.
A biopic of famed French singer Serge Gainsbourg. Born Lucien Ginsburg to Russian-Jewish parents, we follow him from his childhood in Nazi-occupied Paris and his transition from painter to jazz musician to pop superstar, as well as through his many relationships. The film employs a witty surrealistic style and a soundtrack that acts as a time capsule of Paris in the 1960s.
