Storyline

En attendant d'avoir un peu d'emprise sur sa propre existence, Irène habite dans une cage qui fait barrière à Grégoire, son amant, un jeune homme naïf et passionné, fasciné par l'étrange femme dont il ne connaît rien. Barricadée dans sa tour de fer au milieu d'un appartement à moitié détruit, c'est elle qui contrôle l'univers restreint qui est le leur. Irène vit dans sa cage, Grégoire habite l'appartement. Elle ne quitte son antre qu'en l'absence de son amant. Les barreaux de fer constituent la condition de leur amour et sa limite. Grégoire est le sosie de Tania, femme décédée de son patron russe lors du siège de la ville rouge - Irène, hantée par Tania, saura-t-elle contrer la reproduction d'événements tragiques ?

Where is Isabelle Hayeur now?
19 April 2005 | by kniwSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this film a long time ago (I can't even remember where) and thinking that we would hear about this young director in the future. Its language (as in film-language) was so special, so personal. It seemed able tap straight into these powerful feelings I used to have as a teenager, and the naive poetry and imagination that I have now lost somehow as I became a «serious person». I don't know if the fact she is a woman has played against her film making career (probably), but I believe Isabelle Hayeur possesses the talent of a real author, and it's a shame we don't see and hear more of her special stories.

I hope public institutions will see this a give her the necessary funding to finally show what she's really capable of.
