The storytelling itself of Aquitania — for which Legawiec drew on a canon of French legends — truly approximates the grown-up equivalent of what fantasy elicited in us as kids, with a resolution that moves us to revisit phenomena we thought we knew. In addition to magic, one of those phenomena might well be time — certainly often a fraught substance for us adults. The girl's great advantage in her game, Malagigi tells her, is that she has never played it before. For Marguerite — and everyone else — the challenge is re-imagining how to play.
