The Little Bedroom

Actors: Michel Bouquet, Florence Loiret Caille, Eric Caravaca
Directors: Stéphanie Chuat, Veronique Réymond


This is one helluva film.

Story goes...When a young solemn caregiver meets an emotionally distant man, the two could not be less interested in eithers' issues.

Ah, but then empathy sneaks in the door and they create a warm-and-fuzzy bond that's so real you feel you're spying, not watching a film, but peering into the windows of two wonderfully ordinary lives that reveal just how deep any life actually is.

Slowly, the two become reliant on each other to embrace the lives they are each in at that moment; not was has been, or what may be...but facing all that is going on for each of them now.

For Rose (Florence Loiret Caille) the caregiver, the pain is held tangibly in a tiny infant's bedroom's lack of an occupant. For the elder in her part-time care, Edmond (Michel Bouquet) it is the loss of independence and the realization that his son is as distant as he'd made him (ala "Cat's in the Cradle" sad).

But, as the two unlikely thrown-together souls become unlikely friends the love between them will make your heart break and sing. Together, in their brief time together, they discover friendship, kindness, truth...the stuff life dishes out to all. But, as they discover,you have to let someone in to get to life's chewy center.

Beautifully acted and filmed, The Little Bedroom is an emotional powerhouse. But, that being said, it is a quiet crescendo that you are immersed in. Get this and see this.
