Ovid’s ancient, multi-volume narrative poem Metamorphoses is a compendium of classical creation myths involving Roman gods and mortals—many of whom get transformed into plants, animals, or other things. This Latin classic receives a modern-day reimagining in the sensuous, visually stunning new film from the director of Love Songs and Beloved. The movie consists of three magical tales in which a contemporary French high school student encounters Jupiter, Bacchus, and Orpheus. “A remarkably beautiful film.” –Film Comment. No one under 18 admitted! Subtitles. DCP. 102 min.
