GREEN PERFUME, THE
[LE PARFUM VERT]
An actor dies on stage during a performance of Chekhov's "Ivanov" at La Comédie-Française in Paris, whispering the cryptic phrase "green perfume" to his castmate Martin (Vincent Lacoste). Could it be murder? Soon Lacoste is abducted and interrogated by the leader of a nefarious cabal, launching him on an international adventure of political intrigue from Paris to Brussels to Budapest, with bande dessinée artist Claire (Sandrine Kiberlain) becoming his enthusiastic investigative partner. The latest film from Nicolas Pariser (ALICE AND THE MAYOR) is a comic adventure that makes knowing nods to Hitchcock's NORTH BY NORTHWEST and Hergé's Tintin, alongside all-too-real current concerns over resurgent fascism. Official Selection, 2022 Cannes Film Festival. DIR/SCR Nicolas Pariser; PROD Emmanuel Agneray. France, 2022, color, 101 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
