A Feature film by Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi

Produced by Fidélité Films

Release in France : 26/12/2007

    Synopsis

    Marcelline is an actress haunted by her role of Natalia Petrovna, the heroine of Turgenev’s play “A Month in the Country” that she is having difficulty rehearsing. She tries to drown her anxiety in a swimming pool and to a Glenn Miller tune, but it’s all to no avail. Nothing can stop the beat of time passing and her turning forty, and still without a child. Perpetually amazed by the world that she looks at as though she hasn’t found the key, Marcelline tries, above all and without letup, to communicate with everyone around her.
    But who can really help Marcelline understand what she’s doing on Earth? Could the answer be found in Virgin Mary, with whom she makes deals, the magnificent ghost of her father sitting on a handsome couch, the crazy gaze of her mother who likes to go out in boats, or quite simply the kiss given to her by the youngest of the cast?
