BLEU DES VILLES (LE)

a film by :Stéphane Brizé

Solange and her husband lead a quiet life in a provincial town. Mylene, Solange's childhood friend, who is now a TV weather girl, is in town to sign her book. They spend an evening together: dinner, a drink in a nightclub and a few confidences. When Mylene has gone back to Paris, Solange realises that life is passing her by. She had dreams of being a singer, she is in fact a traffic warden. Her costume is a uniform and her audience the drivers who insult her. Her existence suddenly seems very dull, her husband is too normal and her job too degrading. Is it too late to change her life ?

French Synopsis :

Solange et son mari mènent une vie tranquille en province. Mylène, l'amie d'enfance de Solange devenue présentatrice météo, est de passage pour dédicacer sa biographie. Elle lui consacre une soirée. Un dîner, un verre en boîte, quelques confidences. Mylène repartie, Solange réalise qu'elle est passée à côté de ses rêves. Elle s'imaginait chanteuse, elle est contractuelle. Son costume de scène, c'est un uniforme, son public, des automobilistes qui l'insultent. Son quotidien est soudain trop terne, son mari trop normal, son métier trop humiliant. Changer de vie, est-ce encore possible ?
