Louise Wimmer


Lux Prize / To the point
2011 / 80 min. / French version with English and Czech subtitles
Director: Cyril Mennegun
Cast: Corinne Masiero, Jérôme Kircher, Anne Benoit, Marie Kremer, Jean-Marc Roulot

After a painful separation Louise ends up homeless and is forced to sleep in her car. While she earns a modest salary working as a hotel maid, she doesn't lose hope and continues fighting for a better future. Refusing help from even her closest friends, Louise struggles to make ends meet but is determined to succeed on her own. This realistic drama by director Cyril Mennegun is about a woman whose comfortable life is suddenly turned upside down, and she is left to balance on the edge of poverty. The film reflects the increasingly relevant European problem of a blurred distinction between a comfortable lifestyle and absolute poverty. At times, the fall to the bottom is only a few unexpected steps away.
