About the Movie

Jean, a young Parisian with few skills and even fewer prospects, seems an unlikely candidate for assistant to famed photographer Stéphane, an obsessive perfectionist living in isolation since his wife’s unexpected death. Yet he soon finds himself in his new employer’s vast, decaying mansion, helping to create lifesized daguerrotypes so vivid they seem almost to contain some portion of their subjects’ souls. Their model is most often Stéphane’s daughter and muse, Marie, and as she and Jean fall in love they realize they must hatch a plot to leave Stéphane’s haunted world forever. But is there something malevolent within the massive daguerrotypes that will prevent their escape? From acclaimed Japanese master Kiyo shi Kurosawa, comes Daguerrotype, a classic ghost story bent through the lens of one of the most singular horror visionaries at work today.

Rotten: An essential ingredient of Kurosawa's crepuscular style seems to have been lost in translation: his dream logic. – Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club, Nov 1, 2017

Fresh: You'll need patience for it to work on you, but all effort's repaid tenfold, thanks to Kurosawa's murmur-soft, immaculate craft and a trio of gorgeous central performances ... – Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph (UK), Nov 16, 2016

Rotten: Needlessly elongated, amorphous, under-cooked. – Sam Fragoso, TheWrap, Sep 12, 2016

Hauntingly beautiful


A masterwork mixing French and Japanese cinema

Master Kiyoshi Kurosawa signs here an haunting film that will stick into your heads for long after watching. Tahar Rahim is heartbreaking.
