The Hyderabad Film Club is screening 'Beyond The Clouds', an Italian-German-French collaboration film, on March 28th, at the Sarathi Studios, Ameerpet. The film is jointly directed by Michelangelo Antonioni, Tonino Guerra and Wim Wenders, and stars John Malkovich, Vincent Perez, Jean Reno, Jeremy Irons and Ines Sastre.
Beyond The Clouds narrates 4 short tales about love and desire, which are portrayed through the relationships of young couples. Taking place in Ferrara, Portofino, Aix en Provence and Paris, each story has a woman as the central character. Each of these tales take you a step closer, as Antonioni once said, "To the true image of that absolute and mysterious reality."
The first part, 'Chronicle Of A Love That Never Was', is about a young man who travels to Ferrara, and falls in love with a woman he meets there. However, his love remains unconsummated due to a trivial misunderstanding. 2 years later, they meet again, but he chooses to leave rather than consummate his desire for her.
'The Girl, The Crime' is about a man wanders through Portofino, where he is sexually attracted to a pretty boutique owner, and eventually sleeps with her. He is dumbfounded when the girl confesses that she has killed her father.
'Don't Try To See Me Again' follows the story of 2 jilted lovers who get attracted to each other in Paris.
The final part, 'This Body Of Mud', takes place in Aix-en-Provence and tells the story of a man who falls in love with a young woman who has devoted her life to God.
