Short little movie
3 September 2020 | by johnpierrepatrickSee all my reviews

Movie with a slow rythm, this movie seems to be used by its director Elise Girard as an opportunity to mix personal and social topics with anachronism and absurd. Views of a discreet Paris, almost empty. A strange relationship (unfortunately partly fishy). Nuclear protests. Strange birds death. Books. Silence and eye dialogs. This gives it a je-ne-sais-quoi that can be enough to follow without failing this short movie to the end. It isn't a great movie but the delicateness that transpires from it - even if it is sought and does not always achieve the feat to feel genuine - is pleasant.
