A Life Like Any Other

Directing: Faustine Cros


Faustine comes from a family of filmmakers - her father is a director, and her mother was an acclaimed make-up artist. Her father filmed their everyday family life for many years. Archival footage is interspersed with present-day footage, as the director observes her parents in a large empty house in the countryside: her hyperactive father, who is always tinkering with something, and her mother, who sits at the kitchen table. We gain glimpses of her sharp mind from the occasional twinkle in her eyes. This previously energetic and independent woman wanted to take a trip around the world, but instead she gave up her job and stayed at home with her children. However, she suffered in her struggle with her role as a mother. Every mother should be happy…shouldn't they?
