Sansa | Chicago Reader


The title character (Roschdy Zem) of this feature wanders the world in a fog, occasionally impeded by encounters with police or immigration officials seeking proper documents; his peregrinations are rarely explained, but he seems determined to bed as many pretty women as possible. As he travels to Italy, Russia, Egypt, Japan, and elsewhere, he keeps crossing paths with an aged, equally enigmatic musician-conductor who shares his appetite for young babes. Sansa may stand for the displacements of globalization, and writer-director Siegfried evokes nervousness and disorientation with his handheld camera. But this and related techniques wear thin, and locales are often established with trite travel imagery (a long montage of Indian faces set to Hare Krishna music, for instance). 118 min.
