In a Paris redolent with post-'60s malaise, a pair of competing theatrical troupes rehearse their avant-garde takes on Aeschylus plays, while two con artists─a fake mute (Jean-Pierre Lèaud) and a seductress (Juliet Berto)─prey upon the local cafés. All find themselves drawn into the machinations of a mysterious conspiracy in Jacques Rivette's episodic experimental opus; Michele Moretti, Michael Lonsdale, Bulle Ogier, Françoise Fabian also star. 12 1/4 hrs. on 6 Blu-rays/7 DVDs. Standard; Soundtrack: French Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English; bonus documentary. In French with English subtitles.
