The devil will have sent them turning in circles like the dancers of the farandole. But the devil is ultimately nothing but the fog, the wind, the rain, and the mud that penetrate walls and clothes, 29 in order to install themselves in hearts. It is the law of repetition. There is ordinary humanity, which submits to it - and even risks mimicking it - in the joyous farandoles of the holidays. And there are the characters of the story [les personnages de l'histoire],5 who seek to escape from it. Indeed, a story is quite necessary But, as Karrer says, all stories are stories of disintegration: stories in which one seeks to pierce the wall of repetition, at the price of sinking deeper still into the "interior rain," into the mud of corruption.

And the cyclical form adopted by the film - following Laszlo Krasznahorkais 37 novel, which it brings to the screen - seems, equally, to be the most banal means of adapting the form of the return to a repetitive history, to a fiction of disappointed social hope. And if one adds that it takes the film seven hours and thirty minutes to show us the twelve episodes - which, in the novel, bring us back to the point of departure - and that this duration is tied to the very slow, rotational movements that the filmmaker is particularly fond of, and readily accompanies with indefinitely repeated musical themes, one easily concludes that there is an exact alignment between the circular form and a story of disillusion.
