Narcissus/Narcisse

Top of page

Norman McLaren’s final film draws on all the talents of this master filmmaker to accompany Fernand Nault’s choreography in telling the myth of Narcissus. A tale about a young man’s incapacity to love others and his love of self that eventually leads him into a trap. A profoundly artistic exploration of the eternal search for love.

1983, 21 min 47 s
