Synthetic Love

Directed by Sarah Heitz de Chabaneix
Narrative Short
France | 24 min | 2020

Diane realizes that the man she fantasizes about shares his life with someone very peculiar… Diane, in her fifties, fantasizes about the enigmatic Pierre, who works with her at the gas station. When she wins a trip for two around France, she decides to invite him along. But she wasn’t aware that Pierre already has someone quite special in his life…

The opportunity to make films that actually look good is something for which I am extremely grateful. My heartfelt thanks go to my cast, crew, and family who were willing to put up with the whims of a new 19-year-old director.
