ACCORDING TO HER

Director: ESTELLE ARTUS

Veronica, a young Russian woman, moves to New York and happily gives up all prospects of a brilliant career as a pianist in order to raise her son. Love, motherhood and a musical career strike dissonant chords in this dark tale of a young Russian woman who tries to keep her bal-ance among wealthy French expats in New York. Just before reaching the pinnacle of fame and freshly arrived in New York from Russia, Veroni-ca happily gives up her career as a pianist to raise her son. Despite constant pressures from her husband Paul, a French stockbroker, she retreats into an indefinite hiatus from performing while fully enjoying her role as a mother. But without a salary or an independent work identity, Veronica’s dependency on Paul grows and a sense of personal dislocation sets in. The question of going back on stage arises more painfully when she meets Amanda, an alluring, promising, and younger pianist from Paris, who soon falls for Paul.
