PARTIR

a film by :Catherine Corsini

Suzanne is about forty years old, a doctor’s wife and mother of two teenagers living in the south of France. Her idle bourgeois lifestyle gets her down and she decides to go back to work as a physiotherapist, a job she trained for but quit in order to bring up her children. Her husband agrees to fix up a consulting room for her in their backyard. The man in charge of the building work is Ivan, an odd job man who has been to prison. When he and Suzanne meet, the mutual attraction is sudden and violent. Suzanne decides to give up everything and live this all-engulfing passion to the full.

French Synopsis :

Suzanne a la quarantaine. Femme de médecin et mère de famille, elle habite dans le sud de la France, mais l’oisiveté bourgeoise de cette vie lui pèse. Elle décide de reprendre son travail de kinésithérapeute qu’elle avait abandonné pour élever ses enfants, et convainc son mari de l’aider à installer un cabinet. A l’occasion des travaux, elle fait la rencontre d’Ivan, un ouvrier en charge du chantier qui a toujours vécu de petits boulots et qui a fait de la prison. Leur attraction mutuelle est immédiate et violente et Suzanne décide de tout quitter pour vivre cette passion dévorante.
