Starts November 4

Orly is composed of four vignettes that take place in the Orly airport.  The first is a conversation between two strangers - expatriate French.  The woman is married to a Canadian and has been home visiting her mother.  The man is a music producer who lives in the U.S. but has been back in Paris for a job interview.  The exchange is rather personal since it is sometimes easier to talk to a stranger than a close friend.  The second sketch shows a mother and a son going to the funeral of the son's father (the mother's ex-husband).  The strained situation and the neutral territory push the two to confess sexual affairs they have had.  Two other stories complete the film and sometimes in-between we see a ground hostess at work or at her break.  The whole thing is just here and now without necessarily leading up to anything else.
Actually, I felt like one does in the waiting area of an airport - somewhat bored.
