Juliette is not really sure about coming to live in this residential suburb of Paris. All the women here are in their forties, have children to raise, houses to keep and husbands who return home late at night. Today she has an appointment in Paris that is important for her career, but she also has to run errands and pick up the kids from school. During the course of her day, monopolized by petty, everyday tasks, Juliette can feel the noose of domestic obligations and household chores slowly tightening around her neck.


“Amusant souvent et émouvant pourtant, jamais triste et toujours captivant, “La Vie Domestique,” servi par des interprètes impeccables, est l’oeuvre d’une cinéaste talentueuse, dont la modestie apparente et la discrétion font aussi le prix.”

Le Nouvel Observateur

The film, which is 1 hour and 33 minutes long, will be shown in its original version with English subtitles.

Film screenings are subject to changes without prior notice. Entrance is free but on a first-come, first-served basis. No reservations.
