A filmmaker goes back to work by shooting a big production called Le Boléro fatal. His daughter, a philosophy teacher, tries to stage the play On ne badine pas avec l’amour in Sarajevo. The episode cinema is what is left from an initial plan of shooting in Portugal, from Fernando Pessoa and his The Book of Disquiet. The beautiful definition of cinema as a “saturation of magnificent signs bathing in the light of their absence of explanation” belongs to Manoel de Oliveira.
