Empty Days

A Feature film by Marion Vernoux

Produced by ADR Productions

Release in France : 01/12/1999


    A man, a woman. Married. But not to each other. They're unemployed. He's been out of a job for a few weeks, she lost hers fourteen months ago. Neither has anything to do all day long. They go shopping at the supermarket, where they become friends. A friendship that slowly turns into love, despite themselves. So they become lovers. Secret, insolent, casual, surprising lovers for idle days. But one day, the man finds another job.

    A man and a woman fill in their days: they shop at the supermarket, become

    friends, then lovers. One day, the man finds a new job. Sometimes I think

    it would have been better if I'd broken my leg rather than persist in

    telling this sort of story. Sometimes I think: next time, they'll work,

    they'll fall in love at first sight, some place in the tropics, and blah

    di blah. Just joking‡” I don't tan!
