A grandmother’s love is more powerful than any other form of love. Hence, losing that affection can provoke some huge emptiness. Just as Banana Yoshimoto wrote about her grandmother’s absence in her book Kitchen, Christelle Lhereux pays homage to that relationship through a film. A film composed of two parts: the home videos Madeleine made about her granddaughter, and the construction of the memory that this granddaughter has of the grandmother she misses so much. The views of both generations get mixed up as fiction and documentary also blur together. Spectators can also build the image of Madeleine through an invented memory, because the 60 year-old retired woman hides behind the camera to observe, with the eyes of an infatuated grandmother, her granddaughter’s dances and pirouettes. The grown-up girl dreams awake with every nook in Madeleine’s house, she goes through them as if she was still a child, while presenting her grandmother to us in order to reunite with her. Because, like Stephen King said, why do people go to the cinema if not to dream with their eyes open? MD
