Notes and Editorial Reviews

A French impressionist musical docudrama written, produced and directed by Thomas Mowrey.

Widely acclaimed as the most brilliant duo on the contemporary scene, Katia and Marielle Labeque perform eighteen pieces by Bizet, Fauré and Debussy while appearing both as themselves and as actresses in Thomas Mowrey's spellbinding impressionistic synthesis of fin de siècle French art and music. Dreams and fantasies mingle with reality in a continuous interweaving of time present with times past and live action with paintings and photographs, as actors on-screen and off tell the dramatic story of Emma Bardac, muse to Gabriel Fauré and Claude Debussy and lover of both.
