Summary :

Eleven stories about love and desire, ambition and despair, that take us back and forth through time from a contemporary Hollywood film shoot to World War I Vienna. In "Cork," a bizarre tale of love in Lisbon, an Englishwoman and a Portuguese poet meet once a year through the 1930s and fulfill each other's fantastical desires; in "Alpes-Maritimes," a young Englishman must decide between the German woman he's seeing and her twin sister, to whom he is more strongly attracted; and in the title story, "The Destiny of Nathalie X," a young, award-winning foreign director, in Los Angeles making a low-budget picture, gradually discovers that he, the cast, the crew and the entire troubled production are heading for unavoidable disaster.
