“My films have always represented a balancing act between those films whose objective is the discourse, the concept, and those which start from the material, from emotions, behaviour and locations.”

    ALAIN TANNER Switzerland, 1969

    For his 1969 feature debut, director Alain Tanner (In the White City) transplants the revolutionary spark and spirit of May ‘68 to his native Switzerland, intelligently examining a man’s attempt to trade his comfortable bourgeois life for the counterculture. Winner of Locarno’s Golden Leopard!
