A documentary fiction taking the form of an investigation conducted not long after the poet’s death, this ambitious film is structured around Rimbaud’s writings and testimonies from those close to him, such as his mother, sister, childhood friend, teacher, and above all his friend and lover Paul Verlaine. An immersive exploration of the poet’s work, set against the backdrop of the history of France.
