Tom et Lola
Tom et Lola
Directed: Bertrand Arthuys
Genre: Drama, Mystery
In this allegorical children's melodrama, nine-year old Tom and Lola (Neil Stubbs and Melodie Colin) have been kept in super-sanitary conditions all their lives, and have only rarely ventured outside their clinical environment wrapped in plastic. They have been told that they have a radical immune deficiency, and will die if exposed to a normal environment. Surreptitiously, they begin to test the truth of this assertion by escaping from supervision in the middle of the night, and discover that whatever their adult captors believe, they are just fine. One day they escape for good, to go to Alaska, where the sky is beautiful and the air is pure.

This is a beautiful treat for visual enjoyment. The very simple idea of two "overhealed" or "overwatched" little souls wanting to rebel and discover and explore and travel and kiss and connect. Simple, but beautifully stripped for us to enjoy seeing something that we already know. It is like life breathing on you from the screen, the dream life.... Don't expect anything especially deep or revealing from it, just "Alaska, Tikera :)".... But you'll remember. Thanks to Bertrand Arthuys for this exceptional work....
