Director: Vincent Dieutre
Cast: Daniel Duval, Dominique Reymond
France, 1995, 70’, color
French with English and Turkish subtitles

This is Vincent Dieutre’s first feature film he directed while writing and teaching at university. An intimate, fragmented, painful, non-chronological journal of a young gay man in Rome at the end of the 1980s, Rome désolée enjoyed critical and popular success to allow Dieutre to continue inventing his cinema in the first person. A period of rehab, syringes, ex lovers, and AIDS: forging an introspective story inscribed into the metaphorical territory of these years of “desolation” and addiction.
