Product Description

Le réalisateur innovateur Michel Gondry propulse encore sa filmographie dans un autre nouveau royaume avec son film documentaire intimiste L'Épine dans le coeur (The Thorn in the heart), un portrait attachant sur la vie de la matriarche de la famille Gondry, sa tante Suzette. Une ancienne institutrice dans la France rurale, Suzette a toujours eu une riche relation avec son fils, Jean-Yves. Michel, apparaissant comme l'intervieweur, et parfois modérateur tout au long du film, se sert de sa caméra pour explorer la richesse des antécédents familiaux parfois difficiles mais d'une manière subtile, sensible et humoristique.

Michel Gondry chronicles the life of Gondry family matriarch, his aunt Suzette Gondry, and her relationship with her son, Jean-Yves.

Format: DVD
Not a very concerted (meaning planned out and polished) effort by the film maker but reasonably interesting storytelling.

This is not a complaint, but a heads up: This DVD is not for the North American region, so you need the right equipment to view this.

life of Suzette Gondry June 21 2010
By R Zern - Published on
Format: DVD
I was able to see this movie at SXSW this year, and I'm grateful that I had that privilege.

I really enjoy being able to look into a stranger's life and just learn random tidbits that would otherwise remain unknown. Being able to see the life of Suzette Gondry was very interesting. The film seemed like a personal movie that Michel made just for him and his family, but it was neat being able to watch this film and feel as if you're being welcomed into their lives--if even just a small part.

After learning about all the ups and downs of her life and watching the impact she has had on many people, I felt as if Suzette had been a part of my life.

I like Michel Gondry, but I hate this film Dec 5 2012
By Wray L. Bowling - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I want to be nice and give this two stars in a sympathetic sort of way, but no. It's just bad. Don't waste your time. Go buy the Directors series DVDs instead, or his new one. This is just not interesting.
