Si loin, si près

Synopsis


En Ardèche, une jeune réalisatrice chinoise accompagne une auxiliaire de vie auprès de quelques personnes âgées. Instants de douceur partagés, rires et silences. Parallèlement, la jeune femme évoque la fuite du temps et la disparition du grand père aimé dans une déambulation rêveuse le long des routes et sous le ciel, si près si loin, de sa vie passée.

Tënk's film review


We see a woman in a wheelchair being pushed by another caring woman down a country road, blooming with spring flowers, and watch her memory slowly unravel. Chujing Xu has a soft, intense eye and a moving voice. Her presence is felt everywhere: here in the moment among the living, and alone on the same road, yet filmed like a dream. Speaking in her mother tongue that becomes our own, she reminds us of the inconsolable grief of loss.
