Sarah Winchester, Phantom Opera

Sarah Winchester, opéra fantôme

Directed by Bertrand Bonello
France, 2016
  • French
  • English


A baroque meditation on the heiress to the Winchester rifle fortune, playing like a ballet-cum-horror film; an ornate tapestry of enigmatic images, chilling synths, and traces of a tragic and eccentric life.

Our take

This month’s Special Discovery duo is a pairing with French auteur Bertrand Bonello (Saint Laurent, Nocturama), first behind the camera and then in front. They are also films that approach and integrate other arts: here, a gorgeous, mysterious sketch towards a dark opera rich in dance and music.
