Storyline

When Claire learns that she is five months pregnant at the tender age of 17, she decides to give birth anonymously. She finds refuge with Madame Melikian, an embroiderer for haute couture designers. And, day by day, stitch by stitch, as Claire's belly grows rounder, the threads of embroidery create a filial bond between them. Written by Sujit R. Varma

a story that hangs by one thread...or two
26 May 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I watched "embrodeuse" yesterday and today again with my wife as I recorded the TV broadcast. It was not like watching a movie, it was like being part of an event. And that event had drama, beauty, emotions all wrapped up in a slow paced almost real time short journey. A little like being in a sailing boat on a breezy but serene day and at nature's mercy and whim . There was no pretension, no excess (pas d'etat d'ame) Just characters going about their torments and eventually helping each other's. Yes it was slow, I understand in our busy generation it's not always appreciable to take time, there is so much to do! But those who can live with a slower pace will be rewarded. It is a simple and wonderful story unfolding in a postcard rural setting but once I have known such a place so I know it's real. Thank you to the person who reminded us that this is the grown up actress from "Monsieur Ibrahim..." I only watched a week ago but did not associate with as I was transported in another era. Some have mentioned "The Girl with a pearl earing" I have seen too but will need to access my memory bank for refresher...My dysfunctional brain does not have much regards for producers, unknown actors and other important people who make such work so enjoyable either. I won't apologise for it but non the less I appreciated it very much but in my own way, so did my wife and I hope you do too.
