Summary, etc.:
Jean, a young Parisian with few skills and even fewer prospects, seems an unlikely candidate for assistant to famed photographer St©♭phane, an obsessive perfectionist living in isolation since his wifés unexpected death. Yet he soon finds himself in his new employeŕs vast, decaying mansion, helping to create lifesized daguerrotypes so vivid they seem almost to contain some portion of their subjectś souls.. Their primary model is St©♭phanés daughter and muse, Marie, and as she and Jean fall in love they realize they must hatch a plot to leave St©♭phanés haunted world forever. But is there something malevolent within the massive daguerrotypes that will prevent their escape?. Nominated for the Platform Prize at the Toronto International Film Festival.. "...all effort's repaid tenfold, thanks to Kurosawa's murmur-soft, immaculate craft and a trio of gorgeous central performances ..." - Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph (UK)
