Quote:
In this movie, TV sets are full of life. If a person is in TV (e.g. because it was filmed on the street) it has a double that’s right in the TV set.

Many persons die in front of their TV set and nobody knows why. Olda, the main character, is one of the persons, that get more and more weak.

Maurice Pialat – À nos amours aka To Our Loves (1983)
