Petits arrangements avec les morts

A Breton beach at sundown. Around a sand castle we have three characters: a kid nicknamed Jumbo and his two adult brothers, François and Zaza, who were also kids one day and went through an event similar to little Jumbo’s: the death of a loved one; a death from which they had to learn to coexist with and become immune to grief, like the bees in that documentary insert narrated by Luc Moullet. Pascale Ferran’s first feature is a triptych, as evidenced by its subtitle, in which we can recognize traces of Arnaud Desplechin’s work –its novelistic nature, its narrative detours. It’s not coincidental: Desplechin collaborates in the script for Petits arrangements avec les morts just as Ferran had co-scripted La Sentinelle with him. Of course, another good title for this Golden Camera award winner in Cannes 1994 could have been La vie des morts. JP

It’s been said of Pascale Ferran, who was born in Paris in 1960 and graduated from the prestigious IDHEC, that she “practices film like haute couture or the engineering of precision.” And even though such a statement becomes easily verifiable in the elegance of her Lady Chatterley or the airport landscape in Bird People, it is als...
