STORY DESCRIPTION:

In the geriatric care section of the Charles Foix d?Ivry hospital, Thierry Thieû Niang, a famous choreographer, is running a dance workshop for Alzheimer?s patients. Through dance, lives are told, memories recounted: regrets, bitterness, moments of joy and solitude. Blanche Moreau is 92 years old. During the filming, she has fallen in love with the choreographer Thierry. The simple fact of falling in love being crazy enough as it is, there?s no longer anything else mad or delirious about Blanche: her illness has simply become lovesickness.

Presso il reparto geriatrico dell?ospedale Charles Foix d?Ivry, Thierry Thieû Niang, coreografo di fama internazionale, conduce un laboratorio di danza con pazienti malati di Alzheimer. Attraverso la danza le vite s?incontrano, i ricordi affiorano pieni di rimpianti, di amarezza, di gioia e solitudine. Blanche Moreau ha 92 anni. Durante le riprese si è innamorata del coreografo Thierry. Poiché l?innamoramento è una follia in sé, Blanche non ha più nulla di delirante: la sua malattia è diventata semplicemente la malattia dell?amore.
