A Feature film by Cyril Gelblat

Produced by Delante Films

Release in France : 09/07/2008

    Synopsis

    Frida, a seventy-five-year old Ashkenazi Jew, is losing her memory and confuses the past with the present. Judith, her daughter, chose not to work in order to stay at home to look after her children. Now divorced, she must cope with her youngest son leaving home and her mother’s ageing, and wonders what her purpose in life is. Simon, Frida’s son, shows great perspicacity about the world in his journalism, but is blind to the changes his daughter is going through and to his mother’s confusion.
    Frida returns to the apartment she used to live in, believing she’ll meet her husband, who’s been dead for several years, there. Instead she encounters thirty-five-year old Manou, her tenant, who is expecting a promotion. But she becomes pregnant and must make a choice.
    The return to this apartment, the crossroads of their lives, allows these characters to find each other and themselves again. Their tales touch upon the passing of time, the changes we all grow through as we grow older – the inevitable things of life.
