BELLEVILLE BABY

Film stills

Kartais manau, jog tave išsigalvojau. Kad tapčiau savimi.

A long distance call from a long lost lover makes her reminisce about their common past. She remembers the spring when they met in Paris, the riots, the vespa and the cat named Baby. She also remembers that one day he disappeared, and that life changed. Slowly, different versions of the truth appear and it seems they don’t remember the same story. Is it possible that we create our memories to invent ourselves? A film about love, time and things that got lost along the way.
