Avec Anna une dernière fois (France)

Alone with Anna

Avec Anna une dernière fois

  • Axel Victor

Synopsis

There are moments in life when everything seams to collapse. Axel is 30, has just finished film school, is unemployed and in quick succession, separated from his girlfriend while his grandmother died. His mother, somewhat concerned by her son’s situation, decides to entrust him with a mission: to take the funeral urn of his grandmother to Sweden, her native country. A little disoriented, Axel arrives in the country of his ancestors with just his camera and Anna’s ashes for company. He begins what will become this film, an object that will be everything but a chronicle of the ominous trip. As, on the way, an encounter will completely change the young man’s life: Clara. Axel Víctor demonstrates here that chance is the ally of cinematographical writing. Without even realising, we shift from a diary of mourning to an amorous chronicle, carried along by the soft movement of the film, by its caress. The use of speech with intelligence and humour, of a body that recalls the gestures of burlesque film, and a conception of film that uses shots like a playground, make this film an unclassifiable object: a love letter full of self-derision, one we have all dreamed of writing at the end of a summer.
