Three Princesses for Roland
Add to selectionDownload PDF
 

Three Princesses for Roland, four people, one family. A tough, funny family which, like all families, is both touching and repelling : poor, like many families, a unique family in the eyes of the director who has known them since childhood. Roland’s suicide is the pretext for making a documentary that speaks to us about poverty, love, hatred, the present, the past, alcohol, violence. With tenderness, the director introduces us to Madeleine, Roland’s aunt, Nathalie, her cousin, and her daughter, Caroline. Three generations of women with similar lives which, amazingly, repeat certain cycles. An essay without judgment or commentary - food for thought on both our heritage and our legacy.
