Synopsis:
Acclaimed director Chantal Akerman becomes the latest filmmaker to take inspiration from Marcel Proust’s epic masterwork 'In Search of Lost Time'. Adapted from the fifth volume, 'The Captive' tells the story of Ariane, who lives under her lover Simon’s surveillance in a grandiose Parisian apartment. Simon harbours an obsessional need to know everything about her. He has her accompanied everywhere she goes and subjects her to endless questioning. Knowing of Ariane’s attraction to women, Simon imagines that she leads a double life, which only serves to increase his desire for her. Akerman’s film is an elegantly constructed and compelling meditation on love, desire and obsession.
