Le temps retrouvé = Time regained by Raúl Ruiz( visu )
2 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in French and held by 65 libraries worldwide
It is 1992 and Marcel Proust is on his death-bed, looking through photos, remembering his life. But the real characters mingle with the fictional ones. And gradually, fiction wins out over reality. His life's only sense lies in the reality of his work, and his work streams before his eyes. His literary characters people his memories like a stereoscope projection on the wall of his room, coming to life in the self-contained world of his small apartment on the Rue Hamelin. The happy days and lost paradises of his childhood alternate with the more recent memories of his social and literary life. The drama of the war, closely examined from the viewpoint of the small circles of Paris society, is transformed into a vast social comedy. In the spreading twilight the shape of post-war society hovers on the horizon
