Storyline

Lola, a 23-year-old student, is working on a law thesis while working part-time at a nursery. Lola lives in a studio under the small apartment that her mother, Claire Forestier, occupies with her younger brother, Guillaume, 15, high school student. From Italy where she spends her holidays, Claire sends postcards to her children. In fact, she does not decide to return. In raincoat and black glasses, she drags a suitcase on wheels in a street in Paris. It feels unstable, weird. Written by M.F Pisier

Surprisingly moving
23 January 2002 | by FredericmignardSee all my reviews

This is quite a good film about the close bonds uniting an excentric and ill mother with her two children. The cast is absolutely brilliant as each actor manages to convey a panel of personal emotions. Pisier, at the same time director and actress, doesn't content herself with depicting flat characters as they all have their ambiguity and that's probably the strength of the film.

The film is about love and family, which may seem a little bit trite and commonplace, and yet the director's honesty is absolutely convincing.

I mustnot forget the lovely music which right from the opening credits rocks the viewer. This is a nice surprise.
