Intérieur d'une ferme. Une fenêtre, une table recouverte d'une toile cirée et un vieux poste de télévision à tube cathodique.

Saisons noires. Plot by the title of the series, I expected monochrome shots a few hard, a dark and  bitter atmosphere. But finnaly, it is the color and softness of the fabrics that I met. It is this hand grandmother marked by the years that I was immediately plunged back into my memories. The compositions are solid and Julien Coquentin takes a broad look at the beautiful everyday things of life. A look at once sensitive and esthete. If these happy nostalgic images the personal story of Julian, they also open us the meanders of a collective memory of our childhood marked by furtive moments, insignificant and yet so precious. Intimate and universal images at once. Just images.
