Yesterday evening, I saw this excellent film at a premiere in the presence of the director Monia Chokri and part of the film crew, within UGC Les Halles, in Paris. During her short presentation speech, she synthesized her film as an autofiction, the autobiographical part remaining undisclosed. She also seemed intimidated and touched by the presence of the audience, in a crowded movie theater.
This film is a cinematographic UFO with exquisite dialogues and endearing characters: Sophia (Monia?) has lived too long in the family cocoon, in total symbiosis with her brother Karim, and after a doctoral thesis of a blatant uselessness, she painfully finishes her adolescence at 35, awkwardly discovering that she must learn to live by herself and for herself, without her family, with a 10-year lateness somehow, the trigger event being the unexpected arrival of the gorgeous Eloise in the life of her brother.
A nice and elegant first movie from Monia Chokri, a young director with a great career ahead of her, undoubtedly.
