LES FILLES DE MON PAYS / THE LIFE OF THE DEAD

Les Filles de mon pays
In a small village in winter, two teenagers, Eve and Carole, dress up to appear older than their years and set out for a party to seduce and be seduced. But sometimes the transition from childhood to adulthood can be a painful one. Director Yves Caumon graduated from the FEMIS film school, and has directed three features: Boyhood Loves (2001), winner Un Certain Regard; Hide and seek (2005), Cannes Directors’ Fortnight; and The Bird (2011).

The Life of the Dead (La Vie des morts)
Patrick is in a critical condition in hospital following a suicide attempt. Alternating between moments of warmth, fear and secret pain, we observe the family members gather in a country house, each trying to exorcise death, as they anxiously await news . . . This is a rare opportunity to see Desplechin’s first film, prefiguring the director’s themes seen in his recent works, Kings and Queen (2004) and A Christmas Tale (2008).

Director: Arnaud Desplechin

54 minutes • France • 1990 • Prix Jean Vigo 1991<
