  • Un film de Manon Coubia

L’histoire d’un grand oncle disparu dans les montagnes, dans les années 50, hante le roman familial de Manon Coubia. C’est à partir de cette histoire qu’elle a imaginé ce récit d’une femme qui attend que la montagne lui rende son amant prisonnier des glaces.

One September morning in 1957 a mountaineer sets out with a friend to climb Mont Blanc and dies in the eternal ice. His young wife sleepily stays behind among the folds of her duvet. All her life she’ll wait for the glacier to give him up again. Manon Coubia portrays this almost classical love tragedy in which time stops, at least for the lost body, in a clear and symbolic visual language as a film triptych somewhere between stagnation and movement.
