Bientôt Max

Bientôt Max, a short film by Virginie Berthier, (2021, 19min30).

With Peggy Lecaude.

Selected in Bangalore Queer Film Festival 2022.

In the early 1880s, Mathilde de Morny is not yet called Max. As a young bride, she spends a weekend in Normandy while her husband accuses her of sapphic adultery. A fantasized, kaleidoscopic and anachronistic portrait that bets on the emancipatory role of fiction in the construction of identities.
