Ondina lives a beautiful, intense and sensual love for Alexia. Until the day her girlfriend doesn’t return from a trip to Greece. And Ondina finds herself haunted by the love she still feels.
Ondina is magnetic and luminous, Alexia has a shadowy presence. Their love is passionate and carnal. But one day Alexia flies to her homeland, Greece, and does not return. Euridice, Euridice is a contemporary variation on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Although there are several equivalences and symbologies hidden in its plot, there are also significant deviations from the versions of the original myth, and it is with perfect narrative mastery, allied to intelligent editing, that Lora Mure-Ravaud elevates this story above a mere “academic” exercise. Mystery is a central element from the very first moment: the mystery that would explain what shadows Alexia’s face is made of, the mystery that surrounds her disappearance, the mystery that marks her second incarnation. The illusion machine is now at the service of a story of ghosts and hauntings, of presences and projections, of intersecting physical and mental planes. Beautiful, beautiful film. (Cláudia Marques)
