La succession Starkov
Director: François - Jacques Ossang

France, Portugal, fiction drama, 2010 m., 93 min.
Emerging from a coma after a water ski accident in which his girlfriend Délie was killed, Stan van der Decken is informed that he is the heir of the mysterious Professor Starkov. Stan then curiously embarks on a trip to the village of Las Estrellas, where he finds out that Professor Starkov, who might turn out to be Délie’s father, had performed a scientific procedure and starts wondering if he and his girlfriend could have served as guinea pigs for the scientist. An odyssey of atonement where intuition and telepathy accelerate the journey in time: a journey to the other side. In this film the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice is revisited fighting the
tyranny of the Time-God.
