The Immortal Story (Une Histoire Immortelle)

synopsis


The Immortal Story was Orson Welles' first film in colour. It starred Jeanne Moreau and was set entirely to the haunting music of Erik Satie.

In 1860s Macao, Mr Clay, a wealthy merchant asks his clerk to read to him when he is unable to sleep. When his clerk starts to read the scriptures, Clay objects, requesting a true story. As Clay himself begins to recount the tale of a sailor who was paid to sleep with a merchant's wife, he is shocked to learn that the story is actually a well-known urban legend, he resolves to make the story come true, no matter what the cost.
