Bali nocturne

1994, 17:00 minutes, colour


Tourné au milieu des paysages naturels de l'île enchanteresse de l'Indonésie, Bali nocturne est une fable inspirée des légendes du pays. Un drame se tisse autour d'une princesse amoureuse d'un page de caste inférieure, ce qui rend impossible la poursuite de l'idylle amoureuse. La magnifique danse balinaise, tout en subtilité et en raffinement, vient illustrer le drame; une pièce musicale de gamelan ponctue et accompagne le récit. Ce film sans dialogue s'appuie sur une photographie et une direction artistique exceptionnelles pour subjuguer le spectateur.
