AND I wanted to put my father
in a van

Affiche PÈRE V1-min.png


At 69, after 8 years of retirement, when you "have no plans"; "when you don't have much to talk about with your wife"; when one only dreams of Australia in front of a map; when everything weighs like a lid. What remains to be done, except for a very long nap? A little spark sprung up when listening to Aline, the song of his 20th birthday. Will she ignite his life when his son, a stubborn director, parks a motorhome on the lawn of his country house? "After his brother's suicide, I film my father, an idle 69-year-old retiree, hoping to revive in him the desire to live."
