The theatre world is a familiar setting for the films of Rivette. In Va savoir, the characters, all quick-witted, well-read and cultured types, revolve around each other in a delightful potpourri of theatre, romance and theft. In the end, everything lands on its feet and they all get the partner they deserve, but before then, long filmer Rivette takes two and a half hours to dwell lightly on the vicissitudes around the six protagonists. Camille is an actress with an Italian company that is in Paris to perform a play by Pirandello, Come tu mi vuoi. Her boyfriend Ugo is the director and the company's most important actor. Both have a hidden agenda for their trip to Paris: Camille meets her ex Pierre, a professor of philosophy, while Ugo is secretly researching a supposedly lost play by Goldoni. In the archives, he is assisted by the charming student Do, who steals his heart. In turn, Do has a link with Pierre: her stepbrother, the playwright Arthur, namely steals an expensive ring from ...

I know what you were to him. Pierre hides nothing from me. I wasn't surprised.
I was. Surprised by you.
Yes. I don't know. By your calm, if you will. Am I being too frank?

This was very good film. Although it was lengthy, the events never slowed down. There was always a progression of the plot from scene to scene and the characters are well-figured into their surroundings. If anyone knows the piano melody played during the opening credits, and I believe also in the first ballet teaching scene where Sonia and Arthur talk, PLEASE tell me the name of the piano piece, its wonderful and I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT IT IS! I must say that the film is overall brilliant and very refreshing from the modern Hollywood films I am usually exposed to. The best part of the movie in my opinion was how all the pieces of the plot are connected and resolved at the end, leaving me with an appreciation for just how perfect the plot was. There are also unusually funny moments in the movie that provide for a breath of air since the film is not very fast paced and long. PLEASE SOMEONE FIGURE OUT THE PIANO PART IN THE OPENING CREDITS.
