“Pere-Lachaise is the largest cemetery in Paris and the final repository of the famous. Among its occupants are medieval lovers Heloise and Abelard; Modernist icons Alice B. Toklas and Gertrude Stein, and sixties rocker Jim Morrison. Through its gates come tourists toting cameras to the burial site of Marcel Proust (though they might never have read him) and who sing at the gravesite of Yves Montand. Widows of well-remembered husbands, meanwhile, sweep their late spouses’ gravestones and water the flowers. Into this ripe milieu, Heddy Honigmann – Peruvian-born Dutch documentarian and career-long chronicler of dislocation – brings the unique perspective and boundless curiosity, looking for the key to art and eternity, the allure of a celebrity afterlife and the solace to be found in a necropolis of stars… Honigmann has made a film of great tenderness as well as profound integrity.” – SFIFF (2007, 95 min., in French w/English subtitles)
