Friday 8 July 2005, Cinéma Lumière 1, Il Cinema Ritrovato, Bologna. Following Bulletin Pathé: On their wedding night Gribouillette finds in Boireau's pocket a compromising photo. She sulks on a chair while the annoyed Boireau falls into a deep sleep. In his dream, Boireau embarks for Canada. But she enters his dream, and under a series of disguises chases the unfaithful like living guilt. After various adventures Boireau wakes up and the newlyweds make up. – Gribouillette's parallel dream is seen in superimposition. The double nightmare is a novel innovation. Valentina's multiple guises. A largely improvised atmosphere.
