Moody scenes of old castles in the mist, the moon on dark waters ... Known as a great French writer, playwright and poet, Victor Hugo was also a remarkable draftsman. Unknown drawings, filmed from the only important collection of Hugo's work, reveal a world of mystery, poetry and dramatic power that is exceptionally cinematographic. More intimate and direct than Hugo's writings, these drawings have the power to take us into the Gothic world of his imagination. There is no narration.
