A fascinating hall of mirrors through a montage of film noir scenes where the actors face a painted portrait. This perfect blend of cinema and painting was commissioned to supplement a book study. Provost exploits the rules of editing to create an imaginary museum visit. He guides us through living rooms and picture galleries of 1940s and 1950s noir crime thrillers, gothic melodramas, and ghost stories.
