Synopsis

One evening, Beni, a young woman, meets her 65 year old neighbour Gégé. The two women become friends and Beni invites Gégé to discover her world through a surprising adventure.

The birth of their cross-generational friendship will shed light on the complexity of bipolarity, a disorder from which Beni suffers. Music unites them and strengthens the core of their friendship.

Student's comment

As a script supervisor, I worked with a director on her film, from the writing stage to the shooting. I was involved right from the preparation stage, setting the timings. This first task helps detect the first inconsistencies in a scenario and to raise general questions about the rhythm. My priority on the set was to supervise the script, which is my main working tool, and to ensure that the intentions of each scene were respected. I monitored the film’s continuity both in terms of the story’s development and the acting. 

Another important function in my work was to anticipate the editing process, the aim being that at the final viewing, the story is as coherent as possible, which involves writing reports and gathering important notes for the editor.
