Michel Subor, Grégoire Colin, Katia Golubeva, Bambou,

“Inspired by philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy’s short autobiographical reflection on his heart transplant . . . this is a film about longing on the deepest level imaginable. . . . As Denis follows Louis [Michel Subor] from the French Alps to Geneva to Pusan to Polynesia in search of the child who has grown up without him, she maintains an extremely delicate if not precarious balance between presence and absence: the sheer presence of the physical world . . . the feeling that for Louis, wholeness will always be a continent away” (Kent Jones, SFIFF 2005). For cinematographer Agnès Godard, “The Intruder is really a succession of scenes without any marked boundaries between reality and fantasy.”
