CANNES 2019: LIVING AND KNOWING YOU ARE ALIVE BY ALAIN CAVALIER

By Mónica Delgado

There’s probably no film as intimate in this whole edition of Cannes 2019 like this work about mourning and goodbye. Alain Cavalier, with over eighty years, delivers a film about the last days of writer and script writer Emmanuele Bernheim, a friend of the author with whom he planned to make a film about her memories. This film diary, in the visual style of the most recent Cavalier, starts with reflections about the transit to the next life, and the narrations on how he accompanied his best friend Anne, who he met at 16, in a process of assisted death. And those images that come up through this tale in first person of the filmmaker, will accompany the whole development of the film, made in an artisan way with a very low budget.
