Dir. Marguerite Duras (1973).
A meditative study somewhere between a literary text and a filmic narrative, this early Duras feature gains a good deal of atmosphere from the house where it was shot, the author's home outside Paris where she wrote Hiroshima, Mon Amour. An allegory of the imagination, it requires patience. One reward is an amusing turn by Gerard Depardieu in the unlikely role of a washing machine salesman.
