Archipel

A Feature film by Pierre Granier-Deferre

Produced by Locus Solus Productions

Release in France : 17/03/1993

She is holed up in her house, "defended" by an envious old principle, an overly-fond governess, and a nurse of easy virtue. "Defended" against whom, against what ? Michel, the only boy left on his own during the holidays, is taken in by Alexandra. And he tries to penetrate this mysterious defense...
