Letter From A Film Maker

France (MIFF 1984)

Director: Ioselaita

The subject of loselaita's "Open Letter" is Paris seen in all its idiosyncrasies and preciousness by an ironic and highly observant "Eastern Eye". A film that rests placidly on its exhilarating montage and the thin but strong thread of its argument.
