More info:


A young woman is rescued by a math professor after being attacked by a presumably unknown man. That’s how the young woman gets to enter into the apartment of this old retired professor (Jean-Claude Brisseau himself), from where she will almost never leave for the rest of the film, to help him with his research on the origins of the Bible and our connection with the unknown and the irrational. La Fille de nulle part holds many other films inside, starting with Brisseau’s previous ones (Choses secrètes, Les anges exterminateurs) of which one might say this is a prolongation. It also includes every film shot in the apartments of their directors, although in that case the references are not so much Jean-Claude Rousseau or Jafar Panahi but Visitors’ Giulio Questi and, on a separate level, The Woman in the Window’s Fritz Lang and La chambre verte’s François Truffaut. Yes, La Fille de nulle part is a film about ghosts and, especially, about what hides behind the mirror. JP
