LOW COST (CLAUDE JUTRA)

by Lionel Baier

synopsis

David Miller has known his date of death since the age of nine. As it approaches, he spends his final moments with those dear to him and is obsessed with the idea of learning how to tie a bow-tie and the Quebec filmmaker Claude Jutra’s falling into the water. Shot using a mobile phone over the course of ten years from Lausanne to Ouagadougou, this is a fiction film about the value of human life in an age where everything is at a “discount”. Life is priceless; death, however, bargains…
