Ground-breaking filmmaker Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Dave Chapelle's Block Party) further propels his filmography into yet another new realm with his intimately personal film THE THORN IN THE HEART (L'epine dans le coeur), an endearing and eye-opening look at the life of the Gondry family matriarch, his aunt Suzette. A former school teacher in rural France, Suzette has always had a fraught relationship with her son, Jean-Yves. Michel, appearing as interviewer, and sometimes moderator, throughout the film, uses his cameras to explore the rich and often difficult family history in a subtle, sensitive, and humorous way. Featuring new interviews, archival Super-8 home movies, animations, and a moving score, THE THORN IN THE HEART is an exquisite feat of personal filmmaking from one of contemporary cinema's most visionary masters.
