    Interviews With Director And Film's Star Sylvie Testud
    Original French Trailer
What's the difference between desire and obsession? Love and possession? Can anyone truly know another person? These questions are at the core of acclaimed director Chantal Akerman's "La Captive" (2000), an hommage to "La Prisonniere" (1927), the fifth volume of Marcel Proust's immortal work, "A Remembrance of Things Past." Handsome but troubled Simon Levy lives a wealthy, isolated life in Paris with his grandmother, a servant and Ariane Rey, the love of his life. Yet his unsatisfied obsession with her forces him to follow her everywhere and suspect that she prefers the company of women over him. Will his discovery of the truth bring fulfillment or tragedy? Stanislas Merhar, Francois Bertin and Sylvie Testud star in this exploration of obsession. Bonus features are included.
