Description: Based on the fifth volume of Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, this film explores a vision of love as possession. The beguiled Simon (Stanislas Merhar) pursues Ariane (Sylvie Testud), though suspects she is engaged in an illicit affair with Andree (Olivia Bonamy). His obsession manifests in a jealous mania that questions who is captive -- the lover or the loved. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Marcel Proust and Swann's Way: 100th Anniversary. Free with admission; Tickets are available at the Admission Desk on the day of the screening.
