DOMAINE
A film by Patric Chiha
FR/AT 2009, 110 min

 
Pierre, a teen of 17, spends all his time with Nadia, a flamboyant mathematician in her forties. Their rapport is friendly, ambiguous, bordering on amorous. The anarchy that reigns in Nadia’s life fascinates this young man on the threshold of adulthood. But Nadia is a wounded soul, dependent on alcohol. Little by little, she slips away. Pierre thinks he can help her, bring her back from the brink...


Patric Chiha
Born in Vienna in 1975. Studied fashion design in Paris, then film editing at INSAS film school in Brussels. Lives and works in Paris as a filmmaker. DOMAINE is his first full-length feature film.
