Belgium, 1968 (MIFF 1969, Programme 30)

Director: Patrick Leoux

M. Basu calls his psychiatrist. He has just had An Experience. An ordinary street led him to a ruined church where a wedding was in progress. He has fallen in love with the bride. Then at the cocktail party after the ceremony she has approached him and together they have fled. A dream? Surely not. Surely not.
