Nina (Barbara Sukowa) and Madeleine (Martine Chevallier) are neighbours, pensioners living across the hall from each other. Nina is a passionate free spirit, and Madeline is a widow with grown children, who too often treat her like she didn’t raise them from infancy. But how would her children react when she tells them that she and Nina have been together for the last ten years?
Skillfully avoiding the conventional structure of a love story, Meneghetti’s tender film is laced with the pain of life lived under the eye of expectation.
Q+A with director Fillipo Meneghetti will follow this screening.
Presented in partnership with the French Embassy in Ireland.
