Help us create one of the most powerful short film about family relationships !
WHAT'S MORE ORDINARY THAN A MOTHER-DAUGHTER LUNCH ?
Nothing, really. But if we add to it a little tension between our characters, a pinch of irritation, a touch of sadness; then we let it stew under the innocent waiter gaze, here we discover a world with two different spin between the still active daughter and the old mother.
Marie, 21 y/o. This short film is her fourth short film. All the ones before were all self-produced. (In my father's memory, 2014, price "coup de coeur" from EICAR ; You should be flattered, 2015, nominated at Chelles's festival and Friday for cine lovers' festival; Impossible choice, Nikon Festival 2014). She likes directed difficult dialogues, film cameras and cheesecakes.
Here my last short film (english subtitles available) which had more than 35K view, two festivals selection and a lot of share :
About the project:
Family history, links, complexity of sentiments are always been stories To have the story taking place in one place only allow us to focus our attention on dialogues and actors. We go deeply in the character identity. and we don't hide by loud music and great and fast editing.
The script's idea come from my mother (That she wants it or not). Few years ago, she told me about the scene at the restaurant she just saw happening. I knew from there that I wanted to tell this story.
That's a universal story, where we can identify ourselves. We can understand the character's, care about them. That's a moving piece of life, by the story we're telling but also by the afterthought which come with it.
Visual inspirations :
(many more to come)
