Cold souls

A series of edited clips from Cold Souls, an independent film from the United States and a debut directing feature by Sophie Barthes (2008).
According to Sundance, "the film presents Paul Giamatti as himself, agonizing over his interpretation of Uncle Vanya. Paralyzed with anxiety, he stumbles upon a solution via a New Yorker article about a high-tech company promising to alleviate suffering by deep-freezing souls. Giamatti enlists their services, intending to reinstate his soul once he survives the performance. But complications ensue when a mysterious, soul-trafficking “mule,” transporting product to and from Russia, “borrows” Giamatti's stored soul for an ambitious, but unfortunately talentless, soap-opera actress. Rendered soulless, he is left with no choice but to follow the trail back to bleak St. Petersburg."
The clips are set against Pá Llegar A Tu Lado, a song by Lhasa that is also featured in the film.
