Description This film deals with a situation where a fellow student fainted at the presentation of her semester work during a critique session. She fell on her own sculpture that dealt with the method of criticism. What were the preconditions that the framework of the institutional reality were disrupted at once? How did each one behave and how is the event remembered? The text layer encircles the recalled situation, recounts, parallelizes and contrasts the different versions. The dialogues or rather monologues do not come from the psychology of the characters, but represent positions of the witnesses. The cinematic dispositive gradually reveals the reconstructed spatial situation of the event.

    painfully beautiful movie. It will linger for a long time after you watch, and it will bring you to watch again. Melanie Laurent deserves a long standing ovation.

    Artistically it is a masterpiece. Frames, positions, photography... and the dynamism of the plot is even better. Quick but slow. It makes you immerse yourself deeply in the story.
