I saw this film in 1993 at the San Francisco International Film Festival. It's a rare gem. It was entitled in english "Sundays On Leave". I have never heard of anyone else even seeing this film, as there were only 7 of us in the theater at the San Francisco screening. It's too bad films like this get lost and American and International audiences don't get exposed to them. I have searched through various sources to find a copy of this film in any format, without any luck.
The style to film is similar to Jim Jarmusch's "Night On Earth" (and equal in quality!) It does however, has a much more serious tone. If you should get the chance to see this film, by all means, do! If you know where to find a copy of this wonderful movie, please drop me an email.
