Michael Chomet


Edition 1982
9' - 1981
Director: Michael Chomet
Pathetique by Michael Chomet, a story of the "unwanted child". Or how parents deal with their child when it turns out to have been an "accident". In a cinematically cleverly applied flashback, the child experiences how his parents anticipated him a few months before birth. A perfectly timed short with a richness of feeling and emotionality sometimes not found in ten feature-length films.
