Les Enfants d’Isadora  (Isadora’s Children)

France, South Korea  ·  2019  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  84'  ·  o.v. French

Following the death of her two children, Isadora Duncan created the solo Mother in which a mother cradles her child in a moment of extreme tenderness, then lets it go. A century later, four women encounter this heart-rending dance.


Manivel hadn’t made a film specifically about dance before, though this art he long practiced lent all his previous films their precision and rigor. Isadora’s Children should therefore be seen as the summation of a vision, that of a cinema that devotes infinite attention to the tenuous folds of emotion and beauty.
