DCP, rewatched. It was my first Vecchiali in a Lisbon's movie theater 30 years ago. It was a surprise because i was still a cinephile in training who had some difficulty in recognizing languages yet less explored. I kept, however, a dialogue from the film in which was made a pun between "démonstrateur" and "démonstratif", verb and adjective. This film is the verbalization of an adjectivation as big as representation.
