Court métrage "La Piscine"

Pitch

 

A young girl, Rebecca, has decided to go to the swimming pool. We follow her exhaustive preparation to leave the house, during which she allows herself to be distracted by anything and everything. The distractions become increasingly comical as she becomes more and more distracted and we realize that she does not truly want to go to the pool at all. Her decision to go is an obligation that she tries to avoid and the situation develops into farce.

Intentions

     

 

" La Piscine " is a comedy about fear. Fear of action, of doing things the wrong way. It´s also about our day-to-day tragedies; our laziness, our loneliness. The film will explore our propensity for procrastination. Why do we waste time rather than applying ourselves to achieving the things we want? Is it rooted in our desire for perfection and fear of failure? 

 

This act -

Procrastination – originating perhaps from childhood, when her mother told her to tidy her bedroom. It is an act of resistance, a manifestation of the girl’s independence. The girl enjoys the quiet rebellion of those precious moments before she submits to her mother’s wishes and tidies her room.

 

“Get in the bath!”

“Not right away.”

 

“Get out of the bath!”

“Five more minutes.”

 

“Come to dinner!”

“I’m coming.”

 

How do these moments of gentle resistance to parental authority translate when we are grown up? Do we continue to play the game, only by ourselves? We are late, we are cowardly, we delay. As a result, even the simplest task can seem insurmountable.

 

“I will begin the diet on Monday.”

“Tonight I will smoke my last cigarette.”

“My New Year’s Resolution is to…”

 

What are the limits of our commitment? Why does it inevitably wane? How can we force ourselves to obey the demands that we impose upon ourselves?
