LA PETITE CHAMBRE (THE SMALL ROOM)

This circle of life drama-- Switzerland's entry to the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award-- is about a bereaved mother and a man she works for as a nurse is set in Lausanne.

"This is a story of the heart. Edmonds heart is no longer strong. But it still beats with an independence which fights against the very idea of entering a retirement home, while at the same time refusing help from Rose, his home care nurse. Nonetheless she stands up to him. She knows the tumult that a heart undergoes when it is forced to accept the unacceptable. Hers hasn't yet healed. One day however, a bad fall forces Edmond to accept Roses support".

Directed by Stephanie Chuat and Veronique Reymond. Special thanks to Christophe Vauthey, Consul, Cultural Affairs of the Consulate General of Switzerland, and Francine Brucher of Swiss Films.
