The Mouth Agape

Part of our Maurice Pialat Retrospective September 25th - October 1st at the Royal theatre in West LA. For more info, visit: www.laemmle.com/pialat.

Monique (Monique Melinand) is dying of cancer, lying in bed in the apartment above the store her family owns. Her philandering husband, Roger (Hubert Deschamps), carries on with life, groping the female customers. Her son, Philippe (Philippe Léotard), remains aloof and impatient. Her daughter-in-law, Nathalie (Nathalie Baye), wonders if she is witnessing her own future decline. The four individuals struggle to express, or even feel, their love for one another, as they await the inevitable.
