    Johan Leysen, large Flemish actor of stage and screen, who played Lear in the staging of Ludovic Lagarde, has always been fascinated by the writing of Rainer Maria Rilke. A text of this immense poet has particularly upset: Song of Love and Death of Cornet Christopher Rilke; a prose poem that pays tribute to the tragic fate of one of his ancestors, hired as a standard bearer in the armies of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, killed by charging against the Ottoman cavalry. The father of Johan Leysen has translated this text in Dutch and then sent him. The idealized life of this missing father will mix the fate of the soldier. It is the look of the surviving son that renders this composition. An actor, a singer and a cello quartet accompany a film shot by Laurence Rebouillon; and staged scenes echo musical moments composed by Dominique Pauwels; the audience attending the assembly and disassembly sight souvenirs.
