August 13, 2020

South Bay Film Society

Screening ended.

Ticket purchasers will be invited to an exclusive South Bay Film Society live ZOOM Q&A with film director Oliver Krimpas and screenplay writer Jonathan Kiefer on Wed. Sept. 2, 10 a.m. (PLEASE EMAIL ME SO I CAN SEND YOU THE ZOOM INVITATION).


A vacant French château of unique astronomical pedigree is toured by two strangers whose flirtatious chemistry and daylong conversation yields unexpected discoveries about their place in the cosmic scheme.

★★★★ “This intimate and yet deliciously cerebral romance perfectly suits the lockdown mood of 2020.” – Leslie Felperin, The Guardian

★★★★ “Skillfully cinematic…an amusing, beautifully assembled rumination on love.” – Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall

“An indie with a science-smitten heroine and a continental touch, reminiscent of the cinema of Eric Rohmer in which the eros is contained in radiant, refined conversation.” – Gerald Peary, critic, filmmaker, and Computer Chess supporting actor

Language: English (if you need subtitles, they are available with the CC button in the bottom right-hand corner of the player window)

Length: 1 hr. 20 min.
