A Flower in the Mouth
A film has two parts. The first act is an observational documentary in the world’s largest flower market. Then a fictional second act is about a man, afflicted by a terminal illness, encountering a stranger in a train station bar. A reflection about time running out and what remains to be done, adapted from a play by Pirandello.
Those who are familiar with Éric Baudelaire’s works as a documentarist and artist may be surprised that he adapted a play by the Italian author Luigi Pirandello. A Flower In The Mouth depicts the night scene as if it were the other side of the world. Presented in the diptych format, the film describes what happens in the world’s largest flower market and a small cafe on a beautiful Parisian night. Despite all its complexity and beauty, the film never ignores the humanistic ideal and contains a view of the world, and the human condition, that today’s films sometimes forget. [Sung MOON]
