Three Lives and Only One Death

Directed by Raúl Ruíz. Starring Marcello Mastroianni, Anna Galiena, Marisa Paredes, Melvil Poupaud, Chiara Mastroianni. (NR, 123 min.)

Individually, the quirky tales are playful puzzlers; they collectively interlock to create an allegory about modern European unionism.
