In 1983, the film Where is Parsifal?
was screened at Cannes
and then it disappeared, more or less. BFI included it on their list of 75 most wanted films
. The Telegraph summarized the "lost" title
as "a farce loosely based on Molière’s Tartuffe
, whose turbocharged cast includes Tony Curtis, Orson Welles and Donald Pleasence
," but BFI noted that "the reviews were generally dreadful."
In reality, the film wasn't so much lost as it was misplaced and/or over-looked. It has been available in Australia on VHS
, and director Henri Helman kindly donated his personal 35mm print, with French subtitles, to be preserved in the BFI archive
. But perhaps more interesting than the "lost" status of the movie is the people involved in its creation. [more inside]
