  • When the curtains open on the Journey to Zurich, the tracking shot has already begun. White tulle veils; the stage background is a screen, and on the screen, the distance of a long corridor comes to us...

    When the curtains open on the Journey to Zurich, the tracking shot has already begun. White tulle veils; the stage background is a screen, and on the screen, the distance of a long corridor comes to us... This is an unusual text, inspired by the personal history of its director Franck Berthier. In 2007, he accepted an invitation from an actress friend, suffering from an incurable disease, to accompany her and a few friends on her last journey. Under Jean-Benoît Patricot's pen, this escape becomes a joyful jaunt or road movie, as it was in real life, a thousand miles from a funeral elegy. It is a celebration and a gentle determination, a hymn to friendship, to freedom, to the rebirth of oneself... And yet, full awareness of the inescapable. Projected on stage, a motif of Swiss clocks is there to remind us with black humour: existence is coming to an end. Without any mawkishness, but with greed, the chorus of watchers lives and remembers around the luminous and whimsical figure of Marie-Christine Barrault. The most beautiful of tributes to a woman who wanted to remain standing until the end... Faithful in this to another woman - her own grandmother - who left her these words: "The living close the eyes of the dead, but the dead open the eyes of the living.
