DAGUERROTYPE GETS NATIONWIDE RELEASE IN NOVEMBER
On November 7th, Under the Milky Way releases Daguerrotype on VOD nationwide. An official selection at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, Daguerrotype was directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa (Creepy, Pulse) and stars Tahar Rahim (A Prophet), Constance Rousseau, and Olivier Gourmet.
Jean (Tahar Rahim), a young Parisian with few skills and even fewer prospects, seems an unlikely candidate for assistant to famed photographer Stéphane (Olivier Gourmet), an obsessive perfectionist living in isolation since his wife's unexpected death. Yet he soon finds himself in his new employer's vast, decaying mansion, helping to create life-sized daguerrotypes so vivid they seem almost to contain some portion of their subjects' souls.
Their model is most often Stéphane's daughter and muse, Marie (Constance Rousseau), and as she and Jean fall in love they realize they must hatch a plot to leave Stéphane's haunted world forever. But is there something malevolent within the massive daguerrotypes that will prevent their escape? From acclaimed Japanese master Kiyoshi Kurosawa (Creepy, Pulse), comes Daguerrotype, a classic ghost story bent through the lens of one of the most singular horror visionaries at work today.
