21 Nights With Patti

Year- 2015
Director- Arnaud Larrieu, Jean-Marie Larrieu
Running Time- 1 hr 55 mins

The stage is the house of the deceased and the graveyard. However, 21 Nights with Pattie is not as morbid as it sounds. Caroline, a Parisian woman living a normal married life, is informed of her mother’s death and travels to a Southern France village to attend the funeral. The change of location brings a change of mood as she listens to her mother’s friend, Pattie’s recount of voluptuous adventures. She is further tantalised when a charming, aged man (André Dussollier) arrives after the disappearance of the mother’s body…

A sensuous feast indulging wine and wit, the Larrieu brothers breathed light-heartedness into the dark matters of death, repressed erotic urges and unsettled sexual feelings. The relaxed and Dionysian rural setting along with the act of role-playing provide an occasion to resolve perplexed emotions and obsessions.
