Lungometraggio | –


The film focuses on an elderly couple who spend their days in a Paris apartment. Both love and care for each other, but are grappling with the early stages of dementia. Presented in split-screen, we follow the couple as they go about their daily routines both together and alone. As everyday tasks become more challenging, forgetfulness shifts to something more troubling and their son struggles to care for them as they enter a vortex of mental and physical degeneration.
