Olivier Assayas
Guy Maddin
Chinese action star Maggie Cheung (as herself)
is brought on by a past-his-prime French director (Jean-Pierre Léaud) to star in a remake of Les
Vampires, a silent horror classic. Unable to speak
a word of French, Cheung inadvertently finds
herself caught up in an on-set love square and
a seemingly damned production in this pitchperfect satire of the French film industry.
In a 19th-century Alpine village, the residents
live in constant fear of incurring an avalanche
with the slightest whisper. Living in this culture of subdued expression, Johann (Brent
Neale) and Klara (Sarah Neville) both begin
lusting after their own parents in the hopes of
finding some form of compassion. Duels and
suicides quickly follow in a story that starts silently but threatens to explode at every turn.
