“My love”: with an open coronary heart

with the film My love, filmmaker David Teboul confronts the demise of his companion by going to Siberia to query males and ages of all ages to search out out what it means to “love”. A private and thrilling quest.


” PWhy is it so painful to like and cease loving? » There are questions that no reply satisfies, and but they’ve all been requested. Director David Teboul confronts him after the premature demise of his companion. Producer Frédéric Lauzy was 39 years outdated, and the one who by no means stopped loving him regardless of the storms and the separations felt ” responsible “ of not having been capable of save him from his vices, of not having been capable of pull him out of a race to the abyss within the type of “simultaneous paroxysm of enjoyment and destruction”. Loss of life stripped him of half of his historical past, turning into half amnesiac from the lack of their shared reminiscences. What occurs when nobody else shares them with you? How are you going to ensure of its authenticity with out third-party affirmation? “Hung out took the type of happiness after which disaster occurred.” so observes the narrator of this lengthy contemplative movie, not likely seduced by this retrospective phantasm. It begins with the picture of a frozen steppe and the succinct narrative, in voice off, of a ten-year relationship earlier than evoking the now “Reminiscence White”. This panorama is that of Siberia the place David Teboul was “study the reminiscence of others” ready for his to reappear. On the sting of a chilly, desolate land, he requested women and men of all ages, who’ve been via political upheavals and private dramas, what “my love” means to them. Claiming a durassian model, together with the lengths, it intertwines the life tales of this “Excessive Russia”, generally nostalgic for the USSR, and the echoes of his personal life, asking what stays when all has been misplaced. Asking questions like a researcher and filming like a documentary filmmaker, David Teboul, identified specifically for a current movie about Hervé Guibert, prefers to speak about “intimate fiction”. This setback, which paradoxically permits you to be nearer to your self when shifting away, Michel Tournier referred to as it “extemporaneous”. Not like the retreat in itself, this gesture, each literary and sociological, relies on a “centrifugal motion of discovery and conquest”. The author provides: “Issues, animals and folks outdoors have all the time appeared extra fascinating to me than my very own mirror. Socrates’ well-known “know thyself” has all the time been a meaningless injunction to me. It is opening my window or strolling via my door that I discover inspiration. » That is how David Teboul produces his cinema from the skin.
