Clement Michel Le Grand Bain | Clément Michel
Six friends –including one couple with a baby– have rented a vacation house in the sunny Lubéron. It’s hot. Way too hot. And there’s nothing like a nice swim for cooling off. There’s just one thing. The pool is big, beautiful – and stunningly empty. What do you do when there’s no water in sight? Do you dive, float or sink?
Le Grand Bain is a comedy-on-the-rocks, a quasi-aquatic tragedy about friends, vacations and swimmers.

David Pharao Elle & Louis | David Pharao
Louis is not well. Not well at all. Despite his excellent job, magnificent apartment and pretty young wife, the depressed skinflint’s life has become an absolute hell. Before leaving him, his wife advises him to seek help. But he can’t bear the thought of undergoing long, ruinous sessions of psychotherapy. At that precise moment his gaze falls on Thérèse, who is just putting out the trash bins. Why not do analysis with the concierge of his building? He’s already paying her to do two hours of ironing a week, so with the therapy that would come out to five. A unique, undreamt-of adventure has just dawned between She and Louis (Elle & Louis).

They’ve been living together for several years, but one day Madeleine asks Christian to leave. It just isn’t working anymore. Why go on ? She starts wondering who she really is and who is living inside her: is it 40-year-old
« Madeleine », « Mado » as she was called at 18, or « little Mado », her 5-year-old self? And which of them loves – or used to love - Christian? The adult, the teenager or the little girl? Which of them needs this man and why?
