Magda, 65, just lost her husband, Jean-Pierre. As time goes by, she reconnects with forgotten pleasures, reinvents herself… Until the day Jean-Pierre resurrects, happily expecting his eggs and bacon for breakfast! Magda quickly realizes that she was happier when Jean-Pierre was dead.
It is a film about the end of love between a man and a woman. The ambivalent Belladonna symbolizes love as a poison and love as a remedy. The garden is a metaphor of the main character’s evolution. I would like to direct a joyful and cruel comedy with tragic roots; a flowery film in which lovely flowers also turn out to be deadly.
Born in 1984, I studied film direction at IAD and screenwriting at La Fémis. After working as an actor, assistant director and saxophonist, I wrote and directed 6 short films, 7 music videos and a theatre play. I will be shooting ‘Green-Fit’, a new short film, next summer. I am also co-writing a series for Belgian TV.
