From director Agnieszka Holland (Europa, Europa) and writer Christopher Hampton (Dangerous Liaisons, Carrington) comes TOTAL ECLIPSE, the true, fact-based story of the great 19th century French poets, Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine.

Audacious, demanding and provocative, TOTAL ECLIPSE is the story of a volatile romantic triangle and the lives it consumes. Like Amadeus, it illustrates the easy cruelty of young genius and the constantly warring creative and destructive forces that exist within the artist.
