CHRISTMAS AND HER MOTHER, by Arthur Dreyfus

France. 2019. 93 '. Documentary. VF.

IN DOCUMENTARY COMPETITION

Christmas (52) and Michelle (77) are a strange couple. They can not do without each other, but as soon as they are together, the atmosphere becomes electric. Both keep a foot in the past. Through the prism of speech and silence, "Noël et son mère" explores a mother-son relationship in its most tragic but also the most comical details. By its unique device, their dialogue is a plunge into the universal intimacy between parents and their children.

The eyes of Chérie-Chéris:

Who has never dreamed of unraveling the mysteries of his parents, of a direct dialogue, without taboos, with them? This is the experience lived here by Christmas and his mother, Michelle. Their faces, captivating, emerge from the darkness in a very intimate atmosphere, without artifice. We are fascinated by their face to face, where the words are sometimes moderate, sometimes sharp. Behind this cross-look at their mother-son relationship, prowl the ghost of the father. It is a rare and exciting experience that is proposed, where the viewer experiences in spite of him a voyeuristic delight on this exchange with the hints of "corpse of love which does not finish to rot".

The screening will be followed by a meeting with the film crew.
