Nuit Des Traquees, La R2 Nl (Special Edition) - Rollin, Jean
Releasedatum: 30 november 2006
La Nuit des Traquées is an exceptional work, even within Jean Rollin’s enigmatic oeuvre. The film doesn’t feature the director’s usual ingredients like vampires and lyrical atmosphere, but has a very realistic and chilling touch. Director Rollin also manages to include creepy echoes of the Second World War in his utterly compelling and highly melancholic tale of doomed love.
On a cold dark night a mysterious blonde girl is seen running around in the woods. It’s Elisabeth (Brigitte Lahaie), who has escaped from a high-rise prison, where people are kept who have been contaminated by an environmental accident. Their thoughts, memories and emotions are slowly eaten away by disease, turning them into sad, helpless creatures. A young men (Vincent Carder) has fallen in love with Elisabeth and tries to help her escape. But the clinic’s henchmen are ruthless...
