Souvenir | Chicago Reader


An American sports journalist living in Paris is so obsessed with the confusing and disturbing experiences of her adolescence that she's on the brink of losing her job and a relationship. In possibly imaginary conversations, whose contrived language seems unintentionally more erotic than insightful, she and her brother recall the development of their sexual interest in each other. This 78-minute movie, written by director Michael Shamberg and Stanton Miranda, who also plays the lead, seems the work of too many hands. The “experimental drama,” a combination of nonlinear narrative and nonnarrative, resolves in a cliche and suggests mainly that everyone involved in the collaboration—James Herbert was the director of photography, Chris Marker contributed computer graphics—was far more interested in the medium than the message (1998). With Kristin Scott Thomas and the voices of Christina Ricci and Adam Hann-Byrd.
