Starring Academy Award nominee Marie-Christine Barrault and Cesar Award nominee Brigitte Fossey, Absinthe shares the story of a wandering man (Lary Cech) who dreams of reigniting his artistic passions in the culturally-infused streets of Paris.
Larry Cech not only starred in the film, he also produced the film alongside director Michelle Figlarz, and the film was also screened at The March du Film at the 70th Cannes Film Festival.
Inspired by the glitz and glam of old Hollywood and its movie stars, Absinthe is dramatic and sharp-witted. The film gives homage to the well known and appreciated stars of the past such as Marilyn Monroe and James Brown, quoting their notorious sayings and including them in a more well-to-do, modern context.
With this old Hollywood mystique, each moment of the film keeps you on your toes, wanting to experience what the old black and white stars experience. Absinthe is multi-colored and experimental in its cinematic choices as it takes you on the journey of past meeting present in grimy and excitable Parisian bar.
