SYNOPSIS

After a job interview gone wrong, Lulu sets sail, leaving her husband and three children behind. But being an adventurer is easier said than done. Along the way, our discreet heroine will have three key encounters: with an ex-con being protected by his brothers, an old woman who is bored to death, and an employee who is being harassed by his boss. The surprise of love, the comfort of female intimacy, and a case of misplaced compassion are the three movements in this fugue which will help Lulu find an old acquaintance she has lost touch with: her own self.


 

PROGRAM NOTE


 


 Lulu, a middle-aged housewife, goes to a seaside
 for a job interview. Not surprisingly, Lulu, wife to a
 patriarchal husband and mother of three with a timid
 voice, is turned down by the HR manager. Adding
 insult to injury, the manager says \"Make an effort
 next time. Your looks also count.\" Lulu, frustrated and
 ashamed, misses her train back home. The next day,
 she misses her train again. Based on the bestselling
 graphic novel, Lulu in the Nude portrays a middleaged
 woman\'s connections with other isolated people
 in a strange place, using a subdued tone. Familiar
 coming-of-middle-age stories need new places and
 new peoples, and in this film, Lulu meets new people
 who give her the love and friendship that she had
 forgotten for so long ago. The film\'s primary focus
 is more on the relationship between Charles and his
 wacky brothers and between Lulu and Marthe, an old
 woman than on the romantic relationship between
 Lulu and Charles, giving more maturity to the story.
