Requiem

A Feature film by Alain Tanner

Produced by Gemini Films, Madragoa Filmes, Cab Productions, Filmograph SA

Release in France : 03/06/1998

    Synopsis

    Amid August heat in Lisbon, French author Paul (Francis Frappat) meets various people from his past who surface from his memories into reality. Poet Pierre (Andre Marcon) takes him to a restaurant, and Paul's father (Alexandre Zloto) wants to know how he died. When Paul visits a private club, the headwaiter (Jose Manuel Mendes) bets a bottle of 1952 wine on a billiard shot. Both novel and film serve as tributes to Portuguese writer Fernando Pessoa, who appears here as a character.
