Georgian director/co-writer Otar Iosseliani's complex French crime drama blazes a fascinating trail as two valuable objects pass through the hands of an assortment of colorful characters. As an 18th-century set of china and a 19th-century canvas are possessed, and then lost, by an art dealer, policeman, inventor, gun merchant, several derelicts, and others, the film reveals how fate and chance play vital roles in the comedy of life. Mathieu Amalric, Katja Rupé star. 105 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: French; Subtitles: English. In French with English subtitles.
