Les fantômes d'Ismaël

Arnaud Desplechin France, 2017

Bilouaustria's rating of the film Ismael's Ghosts

Viennale, DCP _ Instead of doing the same film all over again, Desplechin took risks and reinvented himself with this crazy one - one or many actually. Ten different styles, spy, horror, comedy, Bergman-like, mixed in an epic game-hommage for the best and the worst. You can tell thay had fun doing it. First-class cast. DOP Irina Lubtschansky does a great job at switching atmospheres.
