The Session

A Short film by Édouard de La Poëze

Produced by Crew du Chapeau Productions

Production year : 2015


    Paris, 1899, Pierre-Louis is a young, talented photographer and his models our an absolute obsession to him. Amongst them, the sulphurous Countess de Castiglione, his muse for a long time.

    When the latter entrustshim with the realization of an ultimate portrait, he sees the ideal opportunity to venture again into the game of seduction which he is, this time, persuaded to win.

    Welcomed by the governess of the divine aristocrat,s mansion, and under the pernicious eye of her butler, the session will turn out to be more disturbing than supposed.
