Staying vertical

15 yrs 98 minutes 2016 5.9

Leo is a filmmaker who is struggling with his writer’s block. He has no permanent residence, instead, he roams around, living in hotels or in nature. One day when he is out looking for wolves he meets Marie. Marie is a free-spirited woman who works as a shepherdess. Nine months later, she is giving birth to their child, but the combination of post-natal depression and lack of confidence in Leo makes her abandon both him and the child. Staying Vertical was nominated for both and the Palme d’Or and the Queer Palm at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016.
