Mona Lisa Has Vanished

Director(s): François Lunel

Actor(s) / Performer(s): Serge Riaboukine, Vanesa Glodjo, Grégoire Colin, Julie Gayet, Stéfano Casseti, Dominique Besnéhard, Geoffrey Carrey, Charlotte Marquardt

A French producer (Dominique Besnéhard) invites a writer called Franck Brettnacher (Serge Riaboukine) to Paris to write the screenplay for a film. Franck—a widower still grieving for his wife—accepts the invitation, and moves into the Hôtel Georges V where he lives in luxury... but the screenplay writing proves difficult, and he is plunged back into the past. After several days' work, a mysterious stranger called Lisa (Vanesa Glodjo) visits Franck, claiming to have escaped from Leonardo da Vinci's famous Mona Lisa. Who exactly is she? An image from the past? A streetwalker? Or the fantasy of a writer who needs to sublimate reality to get to grips with his writing? Whatever the case, Lisa takes Franck on an extraordinary and terrifying adventure that heightens all his hopes and fears.
