Exit

France, 1998 (MIFF 1999, Fiction)

Director: Thierry Guedj

There are sinister forces operating beneath the stiff formality of a mathematics conference. Within the daily routine small incidents seem to take on a heightened significance. The film and the characters become complicit in a haunting puzzle with no simple solution.
