Baden Baden

Ana, 24 years old, leaves a film shoot where she didn’t fit in, to return to Strasbourg, the city of her adolescence. She made it her mission to change her grandmother’s bathtub to a walk-in shower, a configuration more suited to her advanced age.

Does the pitch seem incongruous? It ballasts. But Baden Baden is a delightful project that evokes Mobile Home (another Tarantula production) while openly drawing inspiration from American independent cinema.

Another surprising element is that this will be the third part of a triptych that director Rachel Lang began with two award-winning short films. Salomé Richard, its main actress, was already on the billboard of Pour toi je ferai bataille and Les Navets blancs empêchent de dormir. The shooting took place this summer; now it’s time for the post-production phase.
