The Scent



At a railway station bar in a small backwater town, a rowdy card game stretches into the late hours of the night. To settle a bet, an old card player stakes his entire reputation as a teller of legends by recounting the adventures of a vampire who preys on scents. A cosmetics saleswoman, a recent arrival in town, is his next victim. A labyrinth constructed of a “story” within a story, within a story, within a story... Long live Guimarães Rosa and Murnau!!!
