By Benoit Jacquot
Julia ROY, based on the novel "The Body Artist" by Don DELILLO
An Alfama Films and Leopardo Filmes coproduction
Rey is a filmmaker.
In a museum, during a retrospective dedicated to him, he sees a young
woman doing a performance.
He follows her to the exit. Her name is Laura, she is younger than him.
They fall in love and hastily get married.
They live in a big secluded house by the sea.
Months pass, Rey dies in a motorcycle accident.
Laura finds herself alone in this house.
During the stinging, and mellow at the same time, experience of mourning, she discovers a human being living with her. Sometimes “it” has Rey’s features sometimes hers. Through this process, Laura replays the words and gestures of the couple before death and she finds a sort of fascination that liberates her.
