Synopsis

Barbara, a young girl, lives with her father. One night, she dreams that a fireman waits outside her window. After travelling the world, Barbara, now a young woman, returns to her childhood dreams. She calls the fire department to her home and locks herself in her room with one of the men.

MUBI's take

The awakening of a young woman’s peculiar sexual fantasies, set in her family’s grandiose bourgeois home, is the source for this enigmatic work, made in reaction to a certain “post-68” lethargy. Poetic and playful in equal measure, Flammes is a rare film that escapes classification.
