"At its best, the film is as delicate and lovely as the gorgeous sequin-embroidered designs the women spin on spider webs of diaphanous materials." -Seattle Post-Intelligencer

SEQUINS (Brodeuses)
Directed by Éléonore Faucher, 2004, 1h29, France
With Ariane Ascaride, Lola Naymark, Thomas Laroppe

After learning that she is pregnant at the tender age of seventeen, Claire (Naymark) finds refuge with Madame Mélikian (Ascaride), an embroiderer for haute couture designers who has buried herself in work following the death of her beloved son. Day by day, stitch by stitch, as Claire's belly grows rounder, the threads of embroidery will create a filial bond between them. In time, the grief-stricken mentor and her anxious apprentice will stop protecting themselves and start helping one another.
