Tomorrow And Thereafter

Tomorrow And Thereafter, "Demain et tous les autres jours"

Synopsis

Director

Mathilde is ten years old. Her parents are separated and she lives
alone with her mother. Her mother is disturbed and has trouble
coping with the real world. Mathilde can see that others consider
her mother crazy, but to her it’s day-to-day life. She protects her
mother. She can sense the threat of separation, without knowing
when or how it could take place. She does all she can to forestall
it, fully aware that all her efforts are doomed to fail.

"Amazing, though, is the way the child leads her own life with imagination and potential. Her only friend and companion, speaking owl given to her by her mother, and the scenes with a girl underwater symbolize the strength of children. The owl as a mother’s gift to her daughter stands in for the director’s affection for the mother. The last shot, symbolizing earnest, heart-felt support to Mathilde, will move the viewer with explosive force."
