Synopsis

Starting from a family film that offers the ordinary moments and sayings, in an attempt to return to the essence. we try, delicately, to touch lightly on the crucial questions of the transmission, the autonomy and the reappropiation by man of his existence.
The haikus take us back to this essence of the things that should only matter to us. Everything seems to be there, but wich phenomenon is stopping the mechanism of life? Why do the old rebellions, the utopias, crumble with age into the most unashamed conformism?
This film is a smile towards my son, to encourage him to live fully, hoping he will find his footing , in a total autonomy.

Synopsis fr A partir d'un film de famille qui décline les moments et les lieux communs,dans une tentative de retourner à l'essentiel, nous tâchons, du bout des lèvres, d'effleurer les questions cruciales de la transmission, de l'autonomie et de la réappropriation par l'homme de son existence.
les haïkus nous replongent dans cette essence des choses qui seules devraient nous importer.
tout semble pourtant être là, mais quel phénomène peut bien venir enrayer la mécanique de la vie ? pourquoi les révoltes anciennes, les utopies, se désagrègent-elle avec l'âge dans le conformisme le plus crasse?
ce film est un clin d'oeil que je fais à mon fils pour l'encourager à vivre beaucoup en espérant qu'il s'y retrouvera plus tard en toute autonomie.
