Nuits d'Afrique

1990, 48:00 minutes, French with English Subtitles


Une jeune femme, Claude, reçoit des cartes postales qui ne lui sont pas adressées. "M", l'inconnu qui les signe, décrit sa lente traversée du désert du Sahara. Claude s'imprègne de ces mots et, bientôt, elle n'entend plus que cet appel vers l'ailleurs, écho de ses propres désirs, ainsi révélés par les voies du hasard.

A young woman, Claude, receives postcards that aren't addressed to her. "M", the man who signs them, describes his long journey across the Sahara desert. Claude is completely absorbed by his words and soon hears this calling out as only the echo of her own desires awakened by whims of fate.
