La Paloma

Directed by Daniel Schmid
Switzerland, 1974
Drama, Romance, Fantasy


This heady exercise in excess mixes the operatic passion of La Traviata, stylish decadence of Stroheim and Sternberg, and the macabre glee of Grand Guignol. Ingrid Caven plays Dietrich-like chanteuse stricken with Camille-like wasting desease.
