- DirectorSebastien Lifshitz
Known primarily for gay art-house dramas such as COME UNDONE and WILD SIDE, French director Lifshitz moves into documentary mode with the candid, often amusing recollections of eleven elderly men and women – some single, some in partnerships – of their awakening to their sexuality in less-than-tolerant pre-war France.
Happy, sad or confused, some became campaigning advocates of non-monogamy, while others forged couple relationships that have lasted to this day. All of them express pride at having maintained their moral and sexual integrity, and one, a single farmer now in his late 80s, reflects fondly on the joys of bisexuality: “the best of both worlds”, as he puts it.
Intercut with poetic landscapes and revealing archive material, Lifshitz’s unhurried, domestically set interviews are both touching and life-affirming.
