L'épine dans le coeur

This trailer genuinely made me sit up and take notice. It follows our days discussion of voyeurism and fly-on-the=wall documentary film making. From the director that bought you Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Michel Gondry, who turns his hand to investigative journalism and follows his aunt Suzette Gondry. It seems to be a heartfelt, yet light, piece with plenty of revelations and some really strong, quirky and interesting characters: the matriarch teacher Auntie.... and the rest. Two things personal struck a chord with me. Its set in rural France, which are some of the best landscapes in the world, so locationally I'm sure it wont disappoint! Secondly I can sort of relate to the teacher relation who had a school within their home, as my best freind was bought up by his teacher parents on a privately owned dyslexic school in the country side in Surrey. Anyway. Take a look.
Sleep now. Basil Brush in the morning.
