France, Italy, West Germany | 1975 | Andrzej Zuławski
Romy Schneider won the first ever César Award (French Oscar) for Best Actress for her performance in this film that the always intemperate Polish-French auteur Andrzej Zuławski made just before Possession. Schneider plays an unhappy softcore actress who becomes the obsession of a paparazzo; the shutterbug proceeds to borrow money and bankroll an experimental stage production of Richard III for her—but it also stars a demented German actor (Klaus Kinski)! With Jacques Dutronc and Fabio Testi. First U.S. release! “At once unspeakably sordid and unexpectedly transcendent, it features Schneider’s career performance and is a must for Kinski fans.” –J. Hoberman, NY Review of Books. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 109 min.
