Just as Director Nora Martirosyan’s earlier film 1937 captured audiences at the 2008 Pomegranate Film Festival, her new piece, LES COMPLICES, continues her exploration of the complex process of transmission and memory. At the centre of the plot, an elderly woman slowly recounts her family’s experience during World War II and their subsequent exile to several places around Europe and North Africa. Her rich narrative is paralleled with the actions of a young boy, who also travels through various places without ever uttering a word, remaining apparently unconscious of the past and yet engaged in the present moment. A tailor-made film for those who like to hear a good story.
