A Curtain Raiser

France, 2006 (MIFF 2006, Fiction Shorts)

Director: François Ozon

Based on Un Incompris by Henry de Montherlant, Bruno and his friend Pierre are in Paris in Bruno's bachelor flat awaiting the arrival of Rosette, who's late again. But this time, Bruno's mind is made up: if Rosette is more than 45 minutes late, the relationship is over.
