LA PETITE MORT

An elderly woman needs to deal with the uncomfortable and shocking discovery of her husband's hidden sexual orientation in the upcoming days after his death.

Everyone has their own secrets, but the idea that they will all be revealed on the verge of death, when you cannot hide them anymore, is simply terrifying.
This true story is shocking in its intensity, its surrealism, its emotional drive, and thus its cinematic power. You can't help but laughing, but at the same time you will feel terrible about it. The dramatic charge brought by the woman's burning pain in finding her husband's corpse, combined with the irony of the man's pathetic death, automatically leads to a unique, cynic and tragicomic situation.
