The Seven Last Words
The Seven Last Words sounds out experiential states and rituals particular to humanity, based on the seven themes expressed in a musical composition: forgiveness, salvation, relationship, abandonment, distress, triumph, and reunion.
A white room. The aging bodies of actors Gilles Pelletier and Françoise Graton testify to a love that has triumphed over time and a captivating lover’s dialogue emerges between two octogenarian bodies defying inertia, old age and death. With music by the group Forêt, this sensuous short film depicts the tremblings of desire and the most elemental components of love.
