Villa Amalia

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Ann (Isabelle Huppert) leaves Paris after seeing her long-time partner in the arms of another woman. She winds up on Ischia, off the coast of Naples, at an old house known as the Villa Amalia, where she is quite literally rescued by Giulia (Maya Sansa). Rendez-Vous veteran Benoit Jacquot perfectly captures the sparse, hard-edged feel of Pascal Quignardýs prizewinning novel. Locations change abruptly, and characters often embark on unexpected courses of action, creating a portrait of a world in which nothing is certain and every moment is ripe with possibility.
