Storyline

In 1955, Orson Welles directed and hosted a mini series for British television. He leads us through a few famous places of Europe with his inimitable touch. In Paris he introduces us to famous artists such as Juliette Gréco or Jean Cocteau who lived in the Saint Germain Des Pres quarter. In London we meet the Chelsea Pensioners, in Spain we attend a Madrid Bullfight and visit the Basque country (Basque Country 1&2). Somewhere between a home movie and a cinematic essay, these short films have been described by French critics as the missing link in Welles' work. Written by Anonymous

Wonderful; not to be missed!
17 July 2005 | by (Brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

The DVD version I've seen has five episodes: St. Germain Des Pres, Chelsea Pensioners, Madrid Bullfight and Pays Basque I & II. Films like this are as close as we may ever come to traveling in time. Welles' inimitable self is revealed here as nowhere else as he travels about Europe, meeting, greeting and interviewing. A rich "cast of characters," the real people encountered on the journey, make for a remarkable study. At times, not only is the influence of the recent war apparent, but also the ominous sense of life at the "dawn of the nuclear age." It's a shame only that there aren't more episodes. Long live Orson Welles!
