“Guillaume Delcourt, 34 years old, supported by his wife Jasmine, is such a talented baker that there are queues outside his premises. But the bakery and the cake shop are narrow. Guillaume is looking for a bigger location to blossom, to turn his name into a reference. He’s a perfectionist, he visits and visits, but nothing suits him...” (A. Cavalier) Alain Cavalier’s images are a good introduction to the master’s den. It is a long and narrow space in which Guillaume moves up and down like a general on the battlefield. Assisted by his wife and his daughter, he chooses the ingredients, prepares the dough for the bread and the cakes, and ensures that all the actions leading to high-quality products are carried out. The result of his work is excellent and rewards him prizes. He has many customers too. But he is ambitious. Like all people who love what they do, he would like to work more and better. Cavalier’s camera follows him as he goes back and forth looking for another shop, in a constant dialectic with his family. Life is opening up in front of them...
