Claire Weygand, a thirty-year-old young woman who is about to defend her anthropology thesis, unfortunately not only feels bad but even worse and worse with each passing day. The migraine attacks she suffers from indeed keep her from working as hard as she should and in despair she decides to consult Doctor Fish. When the medicine the physician prescribes for her fails, Claire, who can't take it any more, asks him to hospitalize her. In hospital, Claire shares her room with Odette, a young woman who has lost the use of her legs and Eléonore, a frightening old woman... Written by
The role of Eléonore was offered to Suzanne Flon, who declined because she was afraid of playing an insane old woman. On the other hand, it is Suzanne Flon who suggested Annie Noël for the part. See more »

This film, the first of ARTE (French/German channel)"petite caméra" series, was shot with 2 miniDV DX100 Panasonic cameras. The kind of stuff you can buy at your local store. However, the quality of the picture matches what you could expect from a highly professional Digital Betacam. Very small, light, sensitive, the DV cams (the other films of the series were shot with Sony PD100 cameras) give new possibilities to the directors. At Berlin the film was presented in a 35mm copy. Nobody noticed the video origin. This demonstrates that it is now possible to produce non-Dogma high quality films with mini DV cameras.
