The Real Star of the Film: "Lament of the Nymph"
31 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A film that despite its complete unabashed intellectual minimalism has some surprisingly humorous and emotionally affecting moments. The film seems at first to be a Bresson inspired Antoine Doinele-esquire sojourn... but at a certain point of the film the real leading star of the picture emerges... in a recital for a new Baroque record... the film showcases an unbelievable transcendent and mournful version of Monteverdi's "Lamento Della Ninfa"... sung by one of the characters... the song is so arresting that it causes everyone who hears it to weep tears of malaise... and to your surprise as you sit in the half empty art house theater eyes half lids you start to feel your chest clench up... your eyes tear and before you know it the combination of the incredible recording by a group called "Le Poeme Harmonique" I believe... and the acute, mournful acting by Natacha Regnier punctuates an otherwise sparse film on an obscure subject with a great burst of emotion...

Having said this... I have been desperately trying to find the recording of "Lament of the Nymph" used in this film, but so far to no luck... it seems that "Le Poeme Harmonique" either has not recorded it for release... or else I'm looking in all the wrong places... I found a version by Cantus Colln but it pales in comparison to the version in the film...

Can anyone help me out? I'm am desperate to find this recording, and you will be too if you see the film...
