Les Fables de Monsieur Gaudart

The Fables of Monsieur Gaudart

 
The film is an exploration into the life of a French cinematographer in Mexico City, fifty years after his dubious suicide. Former companions, lovers, and family members are found. They tell the story of Monsieur Gaudart, a Catholic priest, filmmaker, father, and member of the French Resistance: a man who constantly reinvented himself and slowly became a character in his own fantastic story
