La Captive at The Morgan Library & Museum

Admission to the museum is free on Fridays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Exhibition-related films are free with museum admission (so for this film, free also). Tickets are available at the Admission Desk on the day of the screening.

Based on the fifth volume of Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, this film explores a vision of love as possession. The beguiled Simon (Stanislas Merhar) pursues Ariane (Sylvie Testud), though suspects she is engaged in an illicit affair with Andrée (Olivia Bonamy). His obsession manifests in a jealous mania that questions who is captive—the lover or the loved.

    The movie was a bit haunting and was certainly memorable. It focused on a relationship between an overly controlling man and his overly compliant girlfriend. We continued our conversation in an atmospheric Moroccan restaurant where bellyful era danced in a side room.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
