Jeanne Balibar sings in rehearsal recordings, rock concerts to opera singing lessons, a granary in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines to the scene of a café in Tokyo.
Drawing inspiration from Godard’s Sympathy for the Devil, Pedro Costa fashions an idiosyncratic, black and white portrait of French actor and singer Jeanne Balibar. Capturing the star in long, seductive takes, the Portuguese master eschews biography for the smoky, mystical groove of ineffability.
