| Intense and haunting portrayal of childhood
Marie is growing up but she mixes up growing and illness. Desperately she tries to handle her complex thoughts and doubts, unable to share any of them with her young and absent mother. Still, there seems to be one place where Marie finds solace, the swimming pool. Image and sound emerge us under water, in a deafness that individualizes colors and sounds as if we are listening to them for the first time. What's interesting about this short is that it doesn't really follow a straight and classical narrative but a puzzled and kaleidoscopical insight into the main character's head. Sound and image are used to enter Marie's complex inner world. Emotions fade giving the impression of reconciliation. The director manages to show us a powerful, unique and touching insight into the complexity of childhood. A very clever and poetic short!
