Actors:Andre Marcon , Jane Birkin , Sergio Castellitto , Jacques Bonnaffe , Julie-Marie Parmentier , Helene de Vallombreuse
From legendary director Jacques Rivette ("Va Savoir," "The Duchess of Langeais") comes "Around a Small Mountain," a tale of lost love, chance encounters and the transformative power of art. On a winding mountain road, Vittorio gallantly helps Kate, whose car has broken down, and speeds off never having spoken a word. Later in town, Vittorio learns that Kate has returned to join her family's travelling circus after leaving under mysterious conditions many years ago. Intrigued by her story, Vittorio stays for the show, and the next one, and little by little, is ingratiated into the circus and the lives of its performers, all the while trying to discover the secret that led to Kate's sudden departure.
