Germanspeaking Swiss Premiere
PARTY GIRL by Marie Amachoukeli, Claire Burger, Samuel Theis,  F 2014,  95min,  DCP
French and German with English subtitles

All her life 60-year old Angélique has been dancing through the nights. She still believes in love, enjoys men and the milieu. But now she wants to try to do everything better, once and for all. Party Girl is about the wedding preparations, Angélique and their adult children rush into, when a longtime customer proposes to her...

Written and co-directed by Angélique’s son Samuel Theis, Party Girl narrates about his strong and unconventional mother. She and her four children play themselves. Too beautiful for documentary, too unpolished for fiction, between tears and laughter, the feature debut of the long-lived trio around Samuel Theis is walking boundaries in many ways. Just as Angélique. Who can ever say, if she’s free or egoistic, spontaneous or inconsequent, generous or irresponsible?
