Suwa NobuhiroJean-Pierre Léaud, Pauline Etienne

France/Japan / 2017 / 103 minutes / DCP / Color

A veteran actor, Jean, is finding it difficult to approach a scene which calls on him to expire in front of the camera. Leaving the shoot, he heads for an abandoned house, where he encounters a group of children playing at filmmaking, and meets the spectre of his past love. Blending reality and fantasy, Suwa Nobuhiro’s cinematic poetry is a celebration of cinema’s capacity to understand life’s journey and bring coherence to its disjointed parts. And crucially, a salute to Jean-Pierre Léaud, the “lion” of French New Wave who plays Jean.
