Stourley Kracklite, a burly middle-aged American architect, is in Rome to organize a large-scale exhibition of the work of Etienne-Louis Boullee (1728-1799), a visionary French architect. His wife Louisa is along, and a little bored with his cerebral fixations. Surrounded by Roman art and architecture--whose perfect scaling and Classicist surfaces he has always admired--Kracklite is overcome by narcissistic jealousy. Amidst the graceful clean domes, virile statues, and sturdily parallel columns of Roman monuments, Kracklite suspects Louisa of trying to poison him as his prodigious gut begins giving him searing pains. Anxious and paranoid, he's undone by his fear that despite his internal inspirations, an architect is a speck of a thing compared to what he builds--huge, material spectacles that far outlive their progenitors

An erudite art collector guides an unseen interviewer around six paintings by Frederic Tonnerre, a fictitious 19th century painter, in an attempt to solve the mystery of a missing seventh painting, the disapperance of which has provoked a major scandal. Ruiz's intriguing meditation on the possibilities and limitations of the pictorial in the cinema is also a detective story with clues and solution. The film presents the six paintings as tableaux vivants in which the actors hold poses as they are minutely examined. The film forces the viewer-voyeur to reappraise his approach to static paintings and to the narrative flow of film
