For almost a year, Dominique Cabrera (The Other Shore) used a videocam to record her day-to-day life in a drab Paris suburb. She was a bundle of neuroses: depressed, overweight, fussing over her school-age son, agonizing over an older lover's infidelity, distressed by the national election that would put conservative president Jacques Chirac in office. This 90-minute documentary (1996), edited from the footage, conveys the poetry of the quotidian with its intimate close-ups of bodies and household objects (much like Godard's Two or Three Things I Know About Her), and Cabrera's postscript voice-overs add a poignant layer of irony, especially when she insists that she?s happy now. Video diaries have become fashionable lately on cable TV and the Internet, but this one shows the vast difference between recording one's life and shaping the material into a coherent point of view.
