“The 90s had a pretty bad start”, this is how Vincent Dieutre introduces us to the shadows of his personal universe in those years. Utrecht, Naples, Rome... Three cities and two love stories guide us through the nocturnal itinerary of a man searching for beauties past in the 90s. The first part of the “Films of Europe” cycle constitutes a geographical and sentimental trip through the shadowy art and Caravaggio. An essay, a travelogue, a documentary, a fiction film, this memoir reconstitutes by fragments a fatal journey.

Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.
