A father and his estranged son must come together to hand deliver his daughter's wedding invitations to each guest as per local Palestinian custom, in this rousing family drama from Annemarie Jacir (When I Saw You).
Violette is old enough to get married when her village in the Lower Alps is cruelly deprived of all its men by the repression that followed the republican uprising of December 1851. For the next two years, the village is completely cut off. The women swear an oath that if a man should come, he will become their shared husband, so that life may continue to flourish in each of their wombs.Written by
What an interesting story set in the deep France, in the middle of nowhere, in a remoted village where all men have been deported into war. We think here about THE BEGUILED, or SEVEN WOMEN, but in a lesser scale of course. A women's story and directed by a female film maker. Those women swear to wait for the next man coming and keep him for all of them, so that they can give birth....After LES FILLES DU SOLEIL yesterday, I am still amazed by another female'movie; But the topic is not exactly the same though.
