Experiencing Interruptions?


Louise, aged 68, is suffering from Alzheimer's disease and lives in a nursing home. Her daily life is riddled with sadness because her son Daniel is no longer visiting her, discouraged by his mother's memory lapses. The arrival of a new patient in the home (Leo, 82), who is also suffering from Alzheimer's disease, will upset Louise's life ... but also that of Daniel!

Director Statement

This Short Fiction Film « Alzhaïmour »has been realized with a very low budget (almost nothing) with the free collaboration of a Professional Team. I would like to take this opportunity to express them my deepest thank you and recognition for their trust, dedication and professionalism. Without them all, this film wouldn't be what it is today !

I am actually looking for Chief Producers to support my next Film Projects, a Short Film « Caballo Loco » where shooting is foreseen in Columbia and USA (or Belgium), and the Long Feature « As a horse in winter » where shooting is foreseen in the USA, Belgium and Portugal.
