Synopsis:
This deeply personal tribute to Belgium’s Cinémathèque Royale looks at the nature of film itself – organic, dreamlike, alchemical. Godard said that cinema was truth 24 frames a second. Claudio Pazienza prefers to think of it as cooking. Fun, erudition and poetry all make their appearance on this menu. From Méliès to Fassbinder, even Chaplin, the director-philosopher does the work of remembering and declares his undying love for the seventh art, the expressive mode par excellence of a century in constant shift.
