Madame

Promised to a domestic life in the 1920s, Caroline manages to escape the clutches of a forced marriage and becomes a successful businesswoman. In parallel, her grandson Stéphane struggles to play the role everyone expects, until the day he comes out of the closet. A family saga based on private archive footage, Madame offers a dialogue between the filmmaker and his 90-year-old grandmother, challenging the taboos of gender and sexuality.
