WINTER SEA


Written by Maeve Mc Quillan and Erika Tasini

Directed by Erika Tasini

Produced by Erika Tasini, Tommaso Colognese, Julien Favre and Theresa Schwartzman


A secretive woman's intimate relationship with her brother is threatened when an unexpected guest shows up for dinner at their eccentric mother's house.


A description of a claustrophobic family cross-section, from which notes of morbid tenderness and dull pain emerge. This is all made credible by a cast of young actors, directed by a steady hand.
