Martha… Martha

Fortnight 2001, Feature film, 1h37

Synopsis

Once upon a time there was… Martha, Reymond and their little girl Lise, clinging to one another like three castaways. … A threesome resembling a raft cobbled together with cans and ropes, ready to fall apart at any given moment. Its figurehead, Martha, a fugitive from a nightmarish childhood… Her head thrown back. … In the course of a cramped life, caught between an unstable present and a buried past, the figure of the « MOTHER » looms like a sinister shadow… « MOMMY! » The call reverberates, fanning out like ripples in the water.
