UNE JEUNE FILLE DE 90 ANS (A Young Girl in Her Nineties)
by Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Yann Coridian
(France, 2016, 85’)
In the geriatric ward of the Ivry hospital Charles Foix, not far from Paris, Thierry Thieû Niang, an internationally acclaimed choreographer, conducts a dance work-shop with patients affected by Alzheimer. By way of dance, lives come in contact and regretful memories resurface, brimming with bitterness, joy, and solitude. The lm’s heroine, Blanche, a young woman of 90 years of age, falls in love with the choreographer and her disease turns into lovesickness.
