Storyline

John Locke is a Brit in Marrakech exploring Delacroix's seminal visit there. He's in an isolated villa with Belkis, his enigmatic servant and concubine. He receives slides of erotic drawings that could be by Delacroix; an antique dealer, who's a doctor and may be a white slave trader, says there are two such sketchbooks. By now, Locke's dreams have become intense: they include sado-masochism with compliant young women and visions of a woman in white, who may be a nineteenth century woman executed for an affair with a Frenchman. She looks like a local actress. Against Belkis's advice, Locke accepts various invitations. Aside from dreams and tableaux, will anything real happen? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Robbe-Grillet's best
28 April 2007 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Alain Robbe-Grillet is not mainstream; he makes uncompromising films to please himself rather than an audience and this latest production is no exception yet of all his creations, "Gradiva" is probably the most easily accessible to anyone with the courage to follow where he leads. It is a kind of Alice-in-Wonderland sexual fantasy - not for the feint-hearted - where time and space double back on themselves, where reality and illusion are indistinguishable, where, in spite of transgressing most generally acceptable sexual limits, Robbe-Grillet manages to leave us with an aftertaste of great tenderness. Lovely performances from Arielle Dombasle and Dany Verissimo.
