One afternoon, Mrs. Henry comes to collect her daughter Laetitia, but falls in a heap in the playground, completely drunk.

BIOGRAPHY

BERTRAND TAVERNIER

Lyon, 1941. His period as a film critic and press agent lent him the foundations of his directing career. Although his filmography covers different genres, it never loses sight of reflection on social problems. He has also been praised for his talent as a director of actors. He is likewise an outstanding documentary-maker and essayist: he co-wrote, together with Jean-Pierre Coursodon, 50 ans de cinéma américain
