KEEPER - Watch at home for £7.49 (use promo code DLYS)

2015 | Dir Guillaume Senez | 95 mins | France | Switzerland

Maxime and Mélanie are in love. Together, they explore, full of love and clumsiness, their sexuality until the day Mélanie realizes she’s pregnant. At first Maxime takes the news badly but then gets used to the idea of becoming a father. He convinces Mélanie to keep the baby. It’s been decided – Maxime and Mélanie, fifteen years old, are going to become parents.
Guillaume Senez reveals himself, in his debut feature, as a director of remarkable sensitivity and finely-balanced discrimination. He doesn’t moralise or judge, but keeps his fine actors (Kacey Mottet Klein as Max in particular) on a long lead at all times, allowing the characters and situations to develop organically and fully.

2020 | Dir Zoe Wittock | 93 mins | France | Belgium

Jeanne, a shy young woman, lives at home with her uninhibited bartender mother and works the graveyard shift as a cleaner at an amusement park.
Her mother wants her to meet a man, but Jeanne prefers tinkering in her bedroom with wires, light bulbs, and spare parts, creating miniature versions of theme park rides. During her late-night shifts she begins spending intimate time with the alluring new Tilt-A-Whirl ride that she decides to call Jumbo.
Finding herself seduced by “his” red lights, smooth chrome, and oily hydraulics, Jeanne concludes that the thrilling new relationship she wants to pursue is with Jumbo.
French with English subtitles.

“Jumbo has personality, and that’s a major feat accomplished entirely through the film’s visual language”. Carlos Aguilar –

When I was still living in the United States, I stumbled upon an article describing the incredible story of Erika Labrie, an Olympic goldwinner in archery, who got married to the Eiffel tower in 2004 and became Erika Eiffel. She was said to suffer from the “Objectum sexual” condition. It struck me as the most improbable story, but it encouraged me to think further: How did she become like that? What draws her to objects? How does she experience her love? When did she know? So I contacted her… Only to realize she was one of the most grounded people I had ever met. The contrast was fascinating.
