Out 1, noli me tangere / Spectre / Don’t Touch Me (1971) 4 x DVD9
"Out 1" is about two different theater troupes trying to put on plays by Aeschylus. Lili (Michele Moretti, Wild Reeds) leads the more playful troupe staging "Seven Against Thebes" with elements of modern dance, most ably performed by the sexy Marie (Hermine Karagheuz, Duelle). Thomas (Michael Lonsdale, Munich) heads the more rigorous troupe working on "Prometheus Bound". In two other parallel stories, deaf mute Colin (Jean-Pierre Leaud, The 400 Blows) panhandles by annoying people at cafes with his harmonica until they pay up and Frederique (Juliet Berto, Celine and Julie Go Boating) struggles to survive as a petty grifter. Through mysterious notes, Colin goes on a quest to uncover a secret society known as The Thirteen and falls for haughty Pauline (Bulle Ogier, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie) in the process. Gradually, the characters begin crossing paths and past relationships flesh out.
