La Salamandre

La Salamandre

Movie: La Salamandre
Director: Alain Tanner
Produced by: Alga Films, Svociné
Released By: Forum Films
MPAA Rating: NR

This Swiss-made film closely examines the character of a non-conformist, a subject of unending interest to the reputedly highly conformist Swiss. A TV journalist reads of a lawsuit, dropped for lack of evidence, in which a girl is accused of deliberately shooting her uncle. For some reason, this piques his interest, and the journalist even goes so far as to talk a novelist friend of his into joining him in researching the incident. As their research and interviews proceed, it becomes clear that they have no interest in the actual truth of the incident, but are more concerned to dig deeply into the characters of the girl and her uncle. One memorable scene has the girl, while serving as a shoe store salesperson, fondling the legs of her customers.
