For some time now, Anna has been having a string of dreams that fit together like the episodes of some incredible story, in which she and her brother are living in an old palazzo in Venice along with a strange, nefarious businessman who comes and goes. In the meantime, a police captain accuses Anna of witnessing a murder she remembers nothing about. It seems that not even the love of her boyfriend, Marc, can help her. It slowly dawns on Anna that her Venetian later ego wants to rub her out.


"How is an idea actually born ? It's as hard to say as it is to describe a dream. It's serendipitous, the uncoordinated coming together of disparate elements, like a poem of Jacques Prévert. The elements are linked by a certain logic, but the logic is mysterious.It never gives up all this secrets. Take a short story by Cortazar, another by Borges, the music of Eddie Palmieri, the face of Charlotte Gainsbourg, the writings of Jacques Lacan, a childhood trip to Venice and a horrible nightmare you had some years ago, put them all together in a car in Paris on a spring day, and you get a flash of certainty : you want to write "Anna Oz".The movie was made in the image of its genesis. I worked on correspondences and paradoxes. I wanted to appeal to intuition, not reason. I wanted to arouse the feeling of nervous excitement that you get when you enter a new world. That, and the delicious knowledge that you might get lost in it."
