Director: Raul Ruiz
La Ville Les Pirates stunned the Venice Film Festival with its breathtaking imagery and bloodthirsty relationship between a murderous child and the woman who may be his mother. Between Anne Alvaro, a noted stage actress here making her screen debut, and another murderer who has taken refuge on Prate island, there develops a strange complicity.
Could he be the same boy? Ruiz seems to be holding up a kaleidoscope to our staid universe...this, his most delirious work to date, is unlike anything else in contemporary cinema
