The Woman in the Silver Plate

Kiyoshi Kurosawa is on quite the roll: nine months after Journey to the Shore and four since Creepy premiered, both of which we highly recommend, we have a new teaser for his French-language debut, The Woman in the Silver Plate, which collects some of the country’s best actors — Tahar Rahim, Mathieu Amalric, Olivier Gourmet (Belgian, albeit French-speaking), and Constance Rousseau (Simon Killer) — for (surprise!) an eerie tale involving the mystical and unknown.

Aside from a likely festival appearance, the thing’s still some ways off — a French theatrical release won’t be underway until late November, and there’s no U.S. distributor yet announced — but at least we have a teaser. However brief, it’s a cinematographic and formal beauty, perhaps early evidence that Kurosawa’s transition to a new language and continent hasn’t dulled the man’s intoxicating sense for capturing images.

See the preview below (via Cine Maldito and Film De Culte):


A former fashion photographer, Stephane works obsessively in an old 19th-century photography technique, said to have given eternal after-life to the souls of the people whose image it captured. Jean, a young man desperate for inspiration in his life, becomes Stephane’s assistant. He quickly feels captured himself by Marie, Stephane’s only daughter and model. But after Marie takes a mysterious fall one evening, the difference between image and reality becomes much harder to decipher.
