In the the desert, a man is buried to his neck in the sand. One ignores the reason for his presence there. A woman, dressed in red veils, walks past the man and walks away without paying any attention to him. Woken up, he succeeds after a lot of efforts to get out of his sand cradle. This is where his quest begins. A quest to desire.
“In fact the title of “Le Tonneau des Danaïdes” is about desire. This barrel is bottomless like desire. It represents all desires in general, not just sexual desires. In order to get there you have to go through many obstacles and when you finally get there, it is ephemeral. As soon as you reach one you want to get another one. It is a metaphorical film.”
– David Guirad, director of Le Tonneau Des Danaïdes
