Around the Sun
This is a captivating, rather intriguing movie. Maggie (Cara Theobold) and Bernard (Gethin Anthony) make a charming couple as they wander through an abandoned chateau which Bernard is visiting as a location scout for a film shoot. Maggie as a real estate agent offers him a guided tour of the castle, famous because scientist Bernard le Bovier de Fontenelle wrote his book there. As we listen to their banter, director Oliver Krimpas and screenwriter Jonathan Kiefer spin us around the sun while we try to unravel the secrets unfolding, cosmic truths and nerdy conversation. We are given clues through sci -fi plot developments, but still wonder whose story this is? Is it their love story or about characters in the book?
UK 2019 (79 minutes)
Guest: Screenwriter Jonathan Kiefer
