In the 1980s, inspired by Mozart, Éric Rohmer wrote the play “The Kegelstatt Trio”, later filmed under his direction. Now, Portuguese filmmaker Rita Azevedo Gomes (“A Portuguesa”, Olhar ’19), with her typical precision and economy, has adapted the original story and transformed it into a film shot within another film. Within this triangulation game, the cameras of an enigmatic Spanish director record the successive and raucous encounters of a couple of former lovers. (C. M.)
