Mélisande is on the run. We don’t know what from. In the forest she comes upon the mysterious widower Golaud, who loses no time in marrying her and taking her to the water castle of Arkel, his grandfather. But Mélisande does not find the peace of mind that she was hoping for with Golaud. On the contrary, she finds herself in a dark dream landscape in which she is overtaken by the mists of her suppressed past. Cruelty and violence are the order of the day in her new family. But in the midst of all the horrors, the love of Pelléas suddenly sweeps her off her feet with full force.

In his adaptation of Maurice Maeterlinck’s (1862–1949) symbolist magnum opus, US director Daniel Kramer uses intense images to explore the structure of traumatic experience. His nuanced version of Mélisande’s story oscillates between fairytale and antique tragedy – with all highs and lows. It is a woman’s search for female power and self-determined pleasure.

Der amerikanische Regisseur Daniel Kramer fragt in seiner Bearbeitung von Maurice Maeterlincks (1862–1949) symbolistischem Hauptwerk in intensiven Bildern nach der Struktur traumatischer Erfahrung. Er erzählt Mélisandes Geschichte sensibel, zwischen Märchen und antiker Tragödie – mit allen Höhen und Tiefen: als Suche einer Frau nach weiblicher Stärke und selbstbestimmter Lust.
