  • Le bonheur (n'est pas toujours drôle)


Never will author have been more attentive to his time and to the people than Rainer Werner Fassbinder in the 70s / 80s. Filmmaker, playwright, actor and troop leader, he has always fascinated Pierre Maillet.

After staging almost all of his theater, it is in the cinema of Fassbinder that Pierre Maillet is interested in drawing inspiration from three scenarios The right of the strongest, All others are called Ali and Maman Küsters s' go to heaven. With Le bonheur (not always funny), we dive into a carnival with its artists, actors and anonymous, like so many stories to tell, as long as we linger and we know watch them. A carnival that turns into apartments, coffee, cabaret, but also a political rally. Pierre Maillet deploys, attentive to the signifying details of the existence, a saga of small stories, to tell us the big one.
A fine tribute to Fassbinder, to his work, and to the artist's human commitment.
