SYNOPSIS

Monique runs an Emmaus community near Pau, in the South of France. After being estranged for years, her no-good brother Jacques shows up with a single obsession: to find the idea that will make him rich. Rather than a family reunion, it’s two different worldviews clashing.

 

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

“(…) This is where I Feel Good is a true political film. We show how fanatic individualism, the will to become rich for the sake of it, with no thought of the consequences, is a disease. (…) What the film tries to say is that there might be a possible path through these tiny groups of people who love and respect each other. The notion of small groups has mattered to us for a long time. Anyway, one thing is clear: without de-growth we’re going to hit a wall. We’re condemned to it, so we might as well do it properly, and these small groups seem a good means.”
