A student murders his tutor for no apparent reason and is then apprehended by a drunken sailor who takes him to a dance hall where he offers him his place on board ship if the student will pay him three Danish crowns and listen to his life story. The sailor revisits his various ports of call each yielding its own strange story. He repeats old romantic themes in his stories which Ruiz liberates from conventional meaning, one piled upon another as if in a dream. Ruiz, a filmmaker in exile, absorbs a range of influences in his wild story telling - Coleridge, Hans Christian Andersen, Poe, Last Year at Marienbad, Dylan Thomas, Pandora and the Flying Dutchman and Welles - only to float free of them, an invocation of European art cinema adrift in the exotic settings of the third world

L'Hypothèse du tableau volé The hypothesis of the stolen painting ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1991 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An erudite art collector guides an unseen interviewer around six paintings by Frederic Tonnerre, a fictitious 19th century painter, in an attempt to solve the mystery of a missing seventh painting, the disapperance of which has provoked a major scandal. Ruiz's intriguing meditation on the possibilities and limitations of the pictorial in the cinema is also a detective story with clues and solution. The film presents the six paintings as tableaux vivants in which the actors hold poses as they are minutely examined. The film forces the viewer-voyeur to reappraise his approach to static paintings and to the narrative flow of film
