My mother died. I am in vertigo. I think of her, I think of both of us. Hence this film "Un essai sur nous deux" ("A Few Words About Us"). A fluid narrative accompanied by images, videos, drawings, memories that pop up here and there, like an emergency to keep the disappeared person still for a while with you. Not to let her go.
