Show Full Description
Baratier’s playfully colorful and rarely screened final feature takes “surreal sci-fi” to new heights. The titular poupée, or “doll,” is in fact the robot wife of a revolutionary impersonating the leader of a fictional Latin American country. La Poupée is part theater of the absurd, part musical with Greek chorus, with an extravagant use of color and staging that make for a singular visual journey. “A highly stylized mix of Grand Guignol, cabaret, and surrealist theater that puts together the incomparable Polish star Zbigniew Cybulski at his most eccentric with the glacial Canadian transvestite Sonne Teal.” (Olaf Möller, Film Comment)
