Storyline

German director Werner Schroeter invited his favourite opera singers to a 13th century abbey near Paris. LOVES DEBRIS didnt have, and couldn't have had, any pre-planned action. There was no script, no continuity. On the other hand, there were precise constraints that provided the rules of the game: the setting, the Abbey of Royaumont, and the chosen participants. Each singer came accompanied by a person of his or her choice, and worked on an aria chosen by the director. And there was ELISABETH COOPER, a "one-woman orchestra", who transposed and played the scores on the piano and organ. Written by LF

A romp through the rather interesting mind of stage and film director Werner Schroeter
5 January 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This film is a montage of images of new opera stagings, of remembrances, of discussions, and of the creative impulse behind what makes a singer sing. It's also a very German film, shot partly on location in a French Abbey, with American singers, Italian, French, and German singers, and a good deal of whimsy.

If you like opera, or even if you don't, it's a terrific film.
