“For fifteen years, I’ve been filming Jacqueline Pouliquen each time when, heading off on holiday to La Baule, she passes by Chalonnes to open the house of her beloved parents who are no longer there. Cupboards, wardrobes, drawers, everything is revisited, she remembers. But it has to be sold, floor by floor. It all ends up stacked in the attic” - ALAIN CAVALIER

In the untouched bourgeois house invaded by swallows and dust, Jacquotte wanders through her childhood. Toys, paintings, stuffed animals, clothes and old umbrellas—how could she ever throw away all this memorabilia? Year after year, she takes inventory and saves her past until it is “saved for eternity.” -TG
