The name of the film is « The Little Room » This film was made and written by Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond in 2010 in Switzerland. It is a psychological film.
It takes place in Switzerland at present. Rose is a nurse and works at a retirement home but visits people in their homes, too. She lives with her husband, his name is Marc. She meets Edmund, a retired person who had lost his wife 40 years ago.
One day Edmund has a heart attack and he goes to the emergency ward. After a short time Rose invites Edmund to live in her flat because his home is now empty. Edmund learns that she lost her baby. Rose doesn’t speak to anyone about this situation. They become friends and they speak about their lives. One day she comes home and Edmund is not there. She searches everywhere but she doesn’t find him. He went to the mountains because his wife had loved them and had died there. Rose’s husband recognizes in the picture of Edmund Les Diablerets. They immediately go to Les Diablerets but it’s too late, because he unfortunately died there some time later.
At the end of the film, Rose is pregnant again. Eventually, she receives photos of Edmund, sent by his father.
Michel Bouquet plays « Edmund ». Florence Loiret Caille plays « Rose »
The directors, Véronique Reymond and Stéphanie Chuat are best friends. They come from Lausanne in Switzerland. They are actresses. They consider themselves an « eagle with 2 heads ». They had a few conflicts during the making of the film but their friendship is more important than the film for them.
Both actresses have made a good movie, considering it is their debut.
The two main actors have played their roles well but the film is boring at times.
The film shows old peoples’loneliness. I think the old people should be in contact with young people because these can learn a lot from them.
