vanity

 

Vanity deals with the anguish that reappears due to actual terrorist events. It draws a labyrinth of missed appointments where the trajectory, though continuous remains elusive. The story is composed as a puzzle, of which the multiple clues reflect a feeling of suspicion that, mixed with confusion turns into a hysterical flight in the middle of the night.

 

 The film, played by Italian dancers lost in Virginia, forms a kind of intimate psycho-western. The action takes place in the high-society of the interwar period. A woman sinks into a paranoia that seems to spring from the vacuity of the night and isolates her, confronted with her own image and the nature of death.
