2 or 3 Things about Marie Jacobson

France | 2019 | fiction | 25 min. Short film competition

This remarkable debut of an actress, Anne Azoulay, intertwines various time frames and realities. It is a subtle and poetic film with elements of humour and lightness which was shot and edited in a unique way. Although dedicated to death and passing away, it affirms life and the family. Marie is a physician. She smokes and reads a lot. From time to time, she talks with the dead. Today, she has learnt that her time has come to say goodbye to this world. She has just a few weeks of life left, which is not much. She needs to act fast, dream, laugh and continue to live.
