Movie Details

Music video director Michael Shamberg debuts with this experimental drama about a woman who comes to terms with painful childhood memories. Orlando (Stanton D. Miranda) is an expatriate American sports journalist living in Paris. She is also slowly recovering from childhood sexual abuse from her father and an incestuous relationship with her late brother. As she wanders the streets on a rainy evening, she sullenly ruminates over her memories. Both Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci play small parts in this film, while legendary filmmaker Chris Marker provides computer graphics. Souvenir was screened at the 1999 Mill Valley Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
