Tom et Lola 1990
1h 37min | Sci-Fi | 17 January 1990 (France)
Their immune systems tragically damaged at birth, TOM AND LOLA are two beautiful children forever isolated in plastic bubbles. But neither cold urethane nor chillier hospital technicians can keep down the beguiling spirit of these indomitable siblings. Nor can anything stop their quest to one day run naked and truly free, unbound from the medical shackles that bind them. Magnifique!
This is a beautiful treat for visual enjoyment. The very simple idea of two “overhealed” or “overwatched” little souls wanting to rebel and discover and explore and travel and kiss and connect. Simple, but beautifully stripped for us to enjoy seeing something that we already know. It is like life breathing on you from the screen, the dream life…. Don’t expect anything especially deep or revealing from it, just “Alaska, Tikera :)”…. But you’ll remember. Thanks to Bertrand Arthuys for this exceptional work….
