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.

Maria Enders will not Jakarta. Neither Lima.

OK for Annie Leibovitz, but one day. And New York, as agreed.

I know it will be just, sorry.

Excuse me, I have another call.

Call me tomorrow, okay? OK.

Here Valentine's assistant's assistant... Maria Enders.

It was the date of the hearing, but...

She will not be there, we have already told the lawyer.

It was she who filed for divorce, why she would dam?

This is ridiculous.

Well, we'll...

Sorry, we are...

Sorry, I hear very bad...

We are in the train, I do not know whether... Shit.

No, not always.

We are in the Alps, mountains, tunnels and... Yes.

Did you read the article on Google and the personal data? This is...

Shameful. They have too much power.

Thank you.

I have no network, but I had Gwen.

It will remove the stuff on X-Men IMDb.

One, that's enough. I will not play again Nemesis.

You should remove it now, everyone talks about already.

Tired of playing in front of green screens.

I'm too old.

Fans will be disappointed.

Could you talk to... What's his name again?

Urs Kobler. It is set for tonight?

Yes I Am. You have your three interviews, the award presentation

and the official dinner.

He is waiting for us at the station to take us to the Dolder...

The hotel you wanted.

- I'll read my draft?

- Of course.

"I am honored that Wilhelm Melchior has entrusted me the price it deserves.

"You know, he decided to retire from public life.

"No timidity or pride. It is modest and generous.

"But he wants to preserve the tranquility of his writing.

"I wish you promise to give it to him personally,

"But Wilhelm me banned.

"I have to join tomorrow in Sils Maria, home,

"But provided only to arrive empty-handed.

"I am here tonight because I owe him everything.

"He chose an unknown 18

"To play the play Snake Maloja , and then for the film.

"The unknown who played Sigrid was me.

"In two months,

"He gave me everything I needed for me to make career."

Until then, it will.

After I did that fragments.

I finished for you?

It must be my tribute. With my words.

If I dry, I'll tell you.

According Mappy, you have 2 hours 30

to go to Sils Maria. It was a driver.

I texted the wife of Wilhelm. She did not answer.

It does not look like Rosa. I gave you the right number?

I have to take.

I have to talk to you.

I know, I just heard.

I have not told him yet.

Whenever I can, okay? I understood.


Still nothing on the net, only this release and...

- Comments.

- What kind of comment?

Nothing interesting. Nonsense, gender...


"I thought he was already dead, he has done nothing good in 20 years."

"The media are interested in the writers.

"People are dying everywhere and we do not care."


"I do not know, but my condolences to his family."

I had Urs Kobler. We canceled the press.

I will see clearer tonight.

It will be really...

- Different.

- It will be a disaster.

Formal and stuffy. Everything he hated.

Yes, people will be sad.

You expect what? It...

He's dead.

If I were loyal to him, I would not go.

You will find the words.

It will come naturally. I believe...

Who better than you honor?

You love him. This is different.

I love him.

I know so little of him.

You see what I mean.

If you want to be loyal to him,

you have to go.

Of course. We are in the process, it can cut...

I'll ask him.

- This is France Inter.

- God.

You have to take it, sorry.

- Rosa just called.

- I remember.

It is no longer reachable. She is very busy, it...

must go to the morgue.

- You know more?

- Yes I Am.

Wilhelm was home. Rosa was the doctor in Basel.
