I don't remember much from this film, it was a long time ago that I saw it. I think it had three seperate stories and one of them was about this woman, and she rides the horse out of the stables and onto the beach. I think the stables were on fire. It was a very dreamy and arty film. Does anyone have an idea of what it is?
Thanks, Heather

Hello, hkauf. It's a film entitled "Histoires Extraordinaires" (or "Spirits of the dead" in English). As you wrote, it contains three segments. The segment you wrote about (with horse) is directed by Roger Vadim and stars Jane Fonda. The second segment is directed by Louis Malle and the last (and best) - by Federico Fellini. I agree this is a very arty and poetic film, though Vadim's segment was pretty bad.

Thank you so much, it was really driving me crazy! I agree the segment was pretty bad but I have a friend who wants to see it for the horse.
Thanks much,
Heather
