Like Adrienne

16 mm – color – 115 minutes – Belgium – 2000

This film is a gift. Gift given to a lady. A lady that I love and who loves me. Adrienne is not my mother. She is not Jewish.
She is 77 years old, the age limit for reading the adventures of Tintin.

The film is divided into seven lessons and a few digressions: the swimming lesson, the driving lesson, the cooking lesson, the sewing lesson, the botany lesson, the etiquette lesson, and the cinema lesson, the only one given by Boris, while all the others are given by Adrienne.

Adrienne lived in Iran for fourteen years, with her husband, a surgeon.
working in the holy city of Meched. When her husband died, she
returns to Brussels near her children and grandchildren. Having learned the Persian language and having endeavored to collect and translate folk tales from the Khorasan region, she ended up putting a little bit of the Orient in her pocket and a lot of sunshine in her stories. If the
cinema may have changed Adrienne's life, Adrienne herself will have
worked to change mine.

Screening followed by a buffet filled with cancoillottes and others
Franche-Comté Lehmann dairy products!
