Call me chaos. An accordion to heal the soul
When Floh, armed with her accordion, starts one of her songs on the Grand-Place in Brussels, she does so with raucous energy.
Like the songs of Edith Piaf, she anchors her lyrics in the gloominess of the day-to-day, the tensions of our society and the conflicts of the world. But Floh’s poetry is also woven with her personal stories and her dreams, illustrated and animated in the film.
The filmmaker’s camera follows her, close, sensitively. The world thus appears in the background, dark and blurred. Floh’s freedom is as elusive as a breath, the inhalation of the accordion as it fills with air before continuing on her way.
