Clouds of Sils Maria

Synopsis: At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young girl who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant to rehearse in Sils Maria; a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself.

She believes that he wrote all day and he wandered,

but it does not clinched and warned the neighbors.

Door closed, no light. He was not there.

When have they found?

By late afternoon. In the middle of nowhere.

Probably a heart attack.

What a joy to see you.


The vultures took the next train.

Join us at the hotel.

See you there.

We are... I do not know what to say.

My first reaction was to want to return.

I understand.

It was also considered whether to

take the lead or cancel.

You know, in Switzerland,

we do not like to spread things in public.

Especially bereavement.

What should have been a celebration

became a posthumous tribute.

It will attract unwanted press.

We will keep it at bay.

The paparazzi are everywhere.

I have to think about it.

Everything falls on me,

- I dunno.

- Of course.

Therefore Henryk Wald is invited.

Henryk Wald?

Yes I Am.

He collapsed, too,

but he will jump on the plane

to be with us tonight.

If you prefer to decline the prize,

Henryk can. See for yourself.

It is linked to theater Wilhelm.

His plays have been written for him.

- You do not like it?

- We made two films.

It was not really well.

But I'm glad he comes.

It was close to Wilhelm and Rosa like it.

It is a great actor.

One last question.

- I forgot to say, forgiveness.

- Chanel.

The press officer is waiting for you at the hotel to try your dress.

- You do not have.

- You do not have to.

It can be switched off?

And no fruit, thank you.

OK, this is in order. Thank you.

So she is going to stay?

- Yes, it remains.

- If I have to change the tickets.

It remains, believe me.

I not arrive, it's impossible.

I can not find the right words.

His body is not cold and everyone wants him.

Obviously qu'Henryk Wald
