About Paysage Intérieur Brut:
Since she returned from a psychiatric hospital, Bernadette has spent most of her time shut away in her kitchen. As a woman violently separated from active life, the kitchen, along with her children’s play area and her husband’s farm which she can see through the glazed window, becomes the territory where she puts her life in order.
