Picaresque and thoroughly modern, Sansa follows the travels of its title character as he quenches his thirst for wine, women, song and movement. He is always on the road, his monumental restlessness driving him through the streets of Europe, Africa and Japan. Writerdirector Siegfried's much-admired first feature Louise (take 2) depicted a young woman's fantasies and experiences as she rambled through Paris; this second chapter shows the meanderings of her male counterpart.
"Sansa is a peripatetic iconoclast who scours the crowds he encounters with his artist's eye, soaking up face after face. Never short of words or wit, Sansa insinuates himself into diverse company, then extricates himself with ease. His acquaintance with a variety of locales and their inhabitants is often brief, but one friendship grounds him: in several places, he encounters Click, a pre-eminent violinist and conductor. The older man is a kindred connoisseur of beauty and the bon mot – and the only person who really gives Sansa a reason to pause in his travels."
