Work in Progress: L’epine dans le coeur (Thorn in the Heart)

In-between Be Kind Rewind and the forthcoming The Green Hornet, director Michel Gondry has produced this personal documentary. The subjects are his aunt Suzette Gondry and her son Jean-Yves. Suzette worked as a teacher in rural France. Gondry squeezes her for stories. In the process, he learns more about himself and where he came from. Considering the fraught parental relationships that turned up in The Science of Sleep, this should be more than initially meets the eye. In this extract, Jean-Yves shows off his Super 8 home movies.
