Ordinary Tenderness

Top of page

A film about tenderness--the everyday tenderness between individuals during brief encounters or in profound relationships--tenderness that, with words or dreams, breaks through suffocating isolation, or with simple gestures renders innermost secrets perceptible. The story of Esther and her husband, Jocelyn, whose work keeps them apart for months at a time, and of her friendship with Bernadette, whose presence makes the long winter bearable.

1973, 82 min 11 s
