Elle s'appelle Sabine

Elle s'appelle Sabine

A Feature film by Sandrine Bonnaire

Produced by Mosaïque Films

Release in France : 30/01/2008

    Synopsis

    An extremely moving portrait of Sabine Bonnaire, an autistic woman, made by her closest sister, French actress Sandrine Bonnaire. It recounts her story through personal archives, shot by the actress over a period of twenty-five years, and gives an account of her life today in a center adapted to her needs. The documentary evokes an endearing personality, whose development and multiple gifts have been crushed by an inadequate and failing health system. After a tragic period of five long years in a psychiatric hospital, Sabine regains her taste for life, even if her capacities remain impaired, in a center in the Charente region. It is a demonstration by example of the lack of specialized centers equipped to cope with the disabled, and the dramatic consequences this engenders.
