Synopsis

Once the show is over at Bastille Opera’s 6th basement, Prof. Turrel and his team open their shop. The service offers the opportunity for couples to say goodbye beautifully: recycling sets, performers and musicians. But tonight, we follow Thibaut’s story: a man who couldn’t say goodbye to his love.

Our take

“Every life is worthy of a film,” we’re told of a premise—in which a company facilitates break-ups through filmmaking—that could have come from Philip K. Dick. Shot, scored, and broadcast live from the Bastille Opera, this poetically meta marvel is a poignant miniature of memory, fantasy, and loss.
