Fragments of a Life Loved

Frammenti di un percorso amoroso

Chloé Barreau / Italy / 2023 / 95’/ French, English, Italian | Italian subtitles

In the course of our lives, we fall in love with the most diverse people. Teenage crush, long-distance love, carnal passion, deep bond: every story is different, every experience unique. Since she was 16 years old, between Paris and Rome, Chloé Barreau – filmmaker, author-she filmed all her loves. While he was living a relationship, he was already constructing the memory of it: filming, photographing, writing. But every story has at least two points of view-what do your exes remember? What is their version of events? Fragments of a love journey reconstruct the life of a woman through the stories of the people who loved her: Sébastien, Jeanne, Laurent, Ariane, Rebecca, Anne, Jean-Philippe, Anna, Bianca, Marina, Marco, Caroline… Intimate testimonies and private images mingle to reveal the universal paths of love feeling. An amazing trip down memory lane for anyone who has loved.
