Rester Vertical (Staying Vertical)
Alain Guiraudie, France, 2016, 98min
RESTER VERTICAL follows filmmaker Leo on a wild trip. In the Lozère, the least populated French département, he meets shepherdess Marie, who is sporting a rifle as she is fending off a pack of wolves trying to attack her flock. The unlikely couple has a child together, but the young parents’ relationship soon goes awry. In a bout of postpartum depression, Marie takes off, leaving Leo not only with the baby, but also with her lonely, boorish father. The filmmaker’s life then increasingly drifts off, becoming part fairy tale, part nightmare, and part pan-sexual fantasy.
