Flowers of Blood

A Feature film by Alain Tanner, Myriam Mézières

Release in France : 01/05/2002

    Synopsis

    Pam, a 14-year-old girl/woman has just killed her lover, a man much older than herself. This event sends us spinning back five years into the past.
    Pam, 9, is her mother’s dresser, protector and gentle accomplice. She accompanies Lily as she travels from cabaret to cabaret, performing her own special number that transforms the erotic floorshow into a veritable art form, both magical and spellbinding.
    Lily is an extravagant, unpredictable and naïve woman. She’s made living the magic of the moment her life’s rule, never thinking that this behavior might be exposing her daughter to a brutal world. Pam doesn’t know her father, has never set foot inside a classroom, and has taught herself to read by using a dictionary.
    Lily and Pam are everything to each other and form a singular couple. They spend their lives being deserted by Lily’s casual lovers and having to make quick getaways from hotels whose bills they can’t afford to pay.
    The day Lily loses custody of her daughter, a world of dreams, glamor and fantasy collapses; Lily begins a descent into hell.
