Bleeding Star

France, 1986 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Bertrand Fevre

Recalling the mythic encounter between Ulysses and the Siren, a series of men become imprisoned by the projections of their own desires. "I felt that Fevre's sensitivity and imagination would bring the Tempest in every man's pot to an artistic boiling point in less than 30 minutes. My feeling was confirmed."

Samuel Fuller
