THE MIDDLE OF THE WORLD
Directed by ALAIN TANNER
Screenplay by ALAIN TANNER and JOHN BERGER

Adriana has a quiet single-mindedness that could be mistaken for stubbornness. She also has a distinct pride in herself, a trust in her own heart, that makes her seem both vulnerable and accessible.
A Swiss engineer named Paul (Philippe Leotard) finds that she is not quite either. The circumstances of his comfortable life are so neatly arranged...
