Set in late 19th century New Orleans, LE PARDON portrays an unusual dialog between a man and a woman: he is heard but not seen, and she is seen but never speaks. A short fictional ghost story, it is a tale of forgiveness and the art of listening, a poem about an almost encounter and an hommage to the Crescent City. French with English subtitles. Written by

Le Pardon gives three clues that it is set in New Orleans: first, there is the opening scene of a typical New Orleans mansion. Secondly, there is the heroine's fleur-de-lis necklace giving a nod to the flag of New Orleans containing several fleurs-de-lis. Thirdly, there is the melancholic NOLA-influenced score that was composed on whimsical instruments like a paper accordion and a custom-made music box. See more
